‘Stranger Things’ Star Finn Wolfhard Covers Velvet Underground at Brooklyn Performance
Finn Wolfhard and his band Calpurnia performed “Here She Comes Now” by Velvet Underground at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade NYC.
Calpurnia, the band fronted by Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard, performed last night (Jan. 12) at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade NYC. The group played a gig of both covers and originals off Calpurnia’s upcoming EP.
One of the most impressive moments of the night was Calpurnia’s rendition of Velvet Underground’s “Here She Comes Now,” which was also covered by Nirvana. Wolfhard is such a star, he encouraged the Rough Trade attendees to dance during the choruses, while shouting out Lou Reed and Hulk Hogan (???).
Calpurnia’s Brooklyn gig also featured covers of Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind,” Weezer’s “El Scorcho” and Twin Peaks’ “Butterfly,” as well as some original cuts for the Vancouver’s band’s upcoming debut EP, due out later this month.
