Dustin from ‘Stranger Things’ playing Asbury Park with his band (sorry, Ed Droste!)
Finn Wolfhard and Joe Keery aren’t the only Stranger Things actor who also play/played in a rock band. Fifteen-year-old Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin in the show, is also in the band Work In Progress with his sister Sabrina. They’re set to play Asbury Park on December 29 at The Stone Pony for the venue’s annual Winter Break Party which features “some of NJ’s best young bands.” Tickets go on sale Wednesday (11/29) at 3 PM. You can watch them cover Pearl Jam’s “Porch” below.
Work In Progress also play NJ’s Tuckerton Beach Grille this Saturday (12/2) but Gaten won’t be at that show.
In other Gaten Matarazzo and New Jersey news, the actor is also starring in a new NJ public safety video promoting safe teen driving.
It's such a shame we no longer have the old musical websites of past using their energy and brains championing underserved artists that truly in this time of hectic noise need it most. We all know stranger things 2 is out. Such a bummer
