90s alt rock favorites Too Much Joy coming back to Chicago (Episode 865)

Too Much Joy returns to the Chicago area for the first time since the late 90s! The band plays Blue Island Beer Company on September 16 for a can’t-miss show that also includes a performance from Jon Langford and Sally Timms of the Mekons!

We talk about the band’s evolution from college rock band to major label artist in the 90s. We cover everything: their KRS-One collaboration (“Good Kill”), “Making Fun of Bums,” R.E.M., the band’s cover of the dreaded Terry Jacks song (“Seasons in the Sun”) and the unthinkable things Ace Frehley’s handlers take care of.

This band is smart, funny and full of pop smarts. Their Blue Island Beer Company show is essentially a once-in-a-generation opportunity!
