Gaten Matarazzo arrives at the American Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater on Nov. 19, 2017 in Los Angeles.

Finn Wolfhard isn't the only teen on the show with musical ambitions.

These Stranger Things kids are milking it. Right now, it seems like every young cast member of the Netflix retro-sci-fi show has some sort of burgeoning musical career. The excellently named Finn Wolfhard, who has also starred in It and multiple PUP videos, fronts the band Calpurnia, currently recording an EP with Twin Peaks’ Cadien Lake James. Joe Keery, who plays the impressively coiffed older kid Steve (the show’s secret hero) plays in the Chicago psych-rock band Post Animal; they released an album last year. Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven, hasn’t officially launched a music career, but she is happy to rap on your late-night talk show. And now Dustin’s got a band, too! points out that Gaten Matarazzo, the 15-year-old who plays the adorable Dustin Henderson, is the apparent singer of a six-piece New Jersey band called Work In Progress. Matarazzo’s sister Sabrina is also in the band. Here’s a very blurry video of Matarazzo covering Pearl Jam’s “Porch” onstage:

A couple more looks at the band on stage and off.
