I had absolutely no idea this kid was not only in a band but a touring band for that matter.

Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin on the hit Netflix series 'Stranger Things' also fronts (along with his older sister) a band called Work in Progress. The band consists of Matarazzo’s older sister, Sabrina, his younger brother Carmen, along with some friends.

Work in Progress cover songs from Paramore, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fall Out Boy, Sublime, Jimmy Eat World and many others. The band also has a couple of original songs which you can check out below.

Matarazzo and his bandmates will be rocking out at The Shelter in Detroit this Friday, August 9th. Doors open up 6 pm and tickets are $18 and available here.

Matarazzo isn't the only cast member from Stranger Things that rocks out in a band. Joe Keery (Steve) plays guitar in a band called Post Animal and Finn Wolfhard (Mike) fronts a band called Calpurnia.

I love Stranger Things and I love how multi-talented these kids are. Watching Dustin with his speech impediment and all just rocking out is freaking awesome.
