This is Deep! He’s the newest member of .carbonated. Usually he jazzes out on guitar but with us he’s #slappindabass  🎸🍍 Deep was born with a full beard and the ability to perfectly scramble eggs 🍳🥚 He was actually an egg farmer back in the day but then decided to sell the chicken coop since he got tired of pondering what came first. So he said “I will come first and I will play bass!” much to the chagrin of Cluck Norris, Mother Clucker, and Mrs. Peepers 🐔🐥🐣 Don’t worry - these chickens are in a better place and Deep is too - with .carbonated.!!!! 🥳🥳🥳🥳🚀🚀🚀🚀🔥🔥🔥🔥🤩🤩🤩🤩🍍🍍🍍🍍🍍 . . . . . #toronto  #torontomusic  #torontoindie  #torontomusicscene  #torontomusician  #torontolivemusic  #torontoconcerts  #torontotalent  #canada  #canadamusic  #indie  #indieband  #bandsofinstagram  #indiemusic  #indiepop  #indiemusician  #psychedelicmusic  #psychedelicpop  #psychedelicrock  #musicblogger  #musicblog  #instamusic  #instalove  #livemusic  #localmusic  #canadianmusic  #instadaily  #songoftheday  #song

Last time I played the Horseshoe Tavern was in 1999. The band formerly known as Parts Unknown just got back from playing basements and schoolhouses in the States and we were glad to be on a proper stage again. 20 years later, we’ll be back on that stage Friday Sept. 6 as Secret Wars. Still up in the air if I’ll be wearing orange pants this time. #tbt  #secretwars  #history  #partsunknown  #postpunk  #nowave  #torontoindie  #musiclife

It’s been a good few days in Toronto for the crew. We managed to snag this crazy pic of Brayson getting some “Views” of the city while rippin’ his bass. Austin also has a red tongue from demolishing a slush puppy just minutes before. Tomorrow we head to Windsor for our next show 💥 • • • • • #torontomusic  #toronto  #torontobands  #torontomusicscene  #torontonightlife  #torontolive  #torontolivemusic  #torontoconcerts  #newmusic  #torontodjs  #indiepop  #torontoartists  #torontolife  #torontobusiness  #torontopromotions  #torontotonight  #music  #stageshows  #torontoindie  #torontostudios  #eventpromo  #torontonights  #torontoradio  #torontostudio  #yyz  #yyzmusic 

@torontonewwave  (TNW) is an independent multimedia festival representing the work of emerging artists in the city. Through a carefully selected series of unique and engaging short films by Toronto's up-and-coming filmmakers, live performances by the best local musicians, and immersive storytelling through virtual and augmented reality, Toronto New Wave provides a platform for artists to showcase their work and network. It’s pretty freaking radical. This year the festival will be held on August 23rd at Daniels Spectrum: get your tickets via link in bio!! 🚀🚀🚀

but of course, is never just work for this troop of monkeys...

beauties working on new material for our next show in about a month! stay tuned!

Caught night two of the Wavelength Summer Music and Arts Festival down at Stackt. Toronto’s @tallies.band  are sweet jangly pop via the Sundays, Primitives, Altered Images, Smiths. @fet.nat  — a four piece from Hull Quebec aptly self described as art punk absurdists. They’re shortlisted for this year’s Polaris prize.
