As it turns out, Finn Wolfhard isn’t the only actor from Stranger Things who is making a name for himself as a musician. Last night, Paramore performed in Brooklyn – and brought along 15 year old Gaten Matarazzo (also known as Dustin Henderson) for a surprise performance.

As of last year, Matarazzo and his sister Sabrina have been in a New Jersey band named Work in Progress. Yesterday, the three Matarazzo siblings got to rock out on stage with Paramore for the first time ever – looking totally, unbelievably psyched to be there.
This whole interaction started when Progress covered Paramore’s “Misery Business”, of which the footage was posted online by fans. It wasn’t long until Hayley Williams took notice.
dear @GatenM123, @itstayloryall & i saw your band’s Miz Biz cover and all i can say is: ??. open invite to crash a pmore stage and thrash those luscious locks around (& harmonize, obv) whenever the spirit (of rock) leads you.
