Most know Joe Keery for his role as reformed jock Steve Harrington on the second season of Netflix’s Stranger Things, but it has come to my attention that he also plays in a rock band, somehow, called Post Animal, based out of Chicago. The news came from Keery’s recent interview with WIRED, in which he and co-star Gaten Matarazzo (who plays Dustin Henderson on the hit show) answered questions based on the things people Google-searched about them most often.
After facing a series of ridiculous inquiries about himself, including “Is Joe Keery dating” and “Is Joe Keery in a domino’s commercial” (he avoided answering both), the actor got a question about whether he was still in Post Animal. He explained that he never really left:
The boys are touring around. I’ve had some work obligations. But I still am active with the band, and writing music.
“Some work obligations” is a casual way of saying he’s been busy acting in and promoting one of the most buzzed-about TV shows of the year, which, you’d think, would take time away from just about everything else. But hey, if Keery is still making music with the band, more power to him.
Let this example serve as inspiration for you, a mere mortal who is ready for the long weekend but decidedly not getting out of your sweatpants or even thinking about leaving the house today.
