Alternative music pioneers FISHBONE return to Chicago on 9/3/22 (Episode 758)

As music fans, our relationship with Fishbone has outlasted most of our personal and in some cases, familial relationships. From that first EP in 1985 through countless, life affirming, get up and move live shows, including some amazing album plays here in Chicago at Riot Fest, Fishbone’s been an essential band through the decades.

They’ll be back in Chicago Labor Day weekend for a show at Bottom Lounge on Saturday, September 3….

Joining me on Car Con Carne is Fishbone’s Lead singer/sax player/theremin player ANGELO MOORE.
