See ‘Stranger Things’ Star Cover Velvet Underground at Brooklyn Show

Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard and his band Calpurnia performed Friday night at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade NYC, where the group played a gig of both covers and originals off Calpurnia’s upcoming EP.

In this Rolling Stone video, Calpurnia deliver their rendition of Velvet Underground’s “Here She Comes Now,” the White Light/White Heat cut that was also covered by Nirvana

Calpurnia’s boisterous take bridges those two versions, with Wolfhard encouraging the crowd to dance during the choruses. “This song goes out to Lou Reed… and Hulk Hogan,” the singer/actor quipped before performing the track.

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 originals destined for the Vancouver band’s upcoming debut EP, due out later this month.

According to Calpurnia, the EP, recorded with Twin Peaks producer Cadien Lake James, boasts six original songs and paves the way for their planned full-length LP, which they release via Royal Mountain Records. The band will record the LP later this year.

Wolfhard, who portrays Mike Wheeler on Stranger Things and recently appeared in the latest adaptation of Stephen King’s It, has previously covered tracks by Nirvana and Mac DeMarco on social media.

The actor said of his introduction to music, “My dad and my mom used to play that kind of music in the car when I was a baby. And then my mom introduced me to the Beatles, and I got obsessed with the Beatles, and then I just went from there. I would also search the web: You know how one video leads to another leads to another? It was kind of like that, but with songs. A Beatles song led to a Led Zeppelin song, and then a Led Zeppelin song led to the Rolling Stones.”

On Friday afternoon, Lil Uzi Vert decided to give career advice to up-and-coming rappers on Twitter. “If y’all do sign … sign 2 a major Dont sign 2 a rapper or a Dj ……..Its Just Easier When The Time Come For That Fake Shit.” The fact of the matter is that Uzi is signed to DJ Drama and DJ Cannon’s Generation Now label in conjunction with Atlantic Records.

DJ Drama responded to his signee Uzi’s tweet directly, writing “Lets state the facts and see who REALLY on some fake shit.” Lil Uzi Vert has been signed to Drama’s Generation Now since 2015. However, last December the 23-year-old rapper began to publicly express his dissatisfaction with his label, once again on Twitter. “We all make mistakes 2 get better,” he tweeted. “I should have never signed but I finna turn all this shit upside down ..you know the way it suppose to be.”

Other rappers decided to jump in with their responses. Lil Durk suggested Uzi take a break from Twitter, meanwhile Rich the Kid said Lil Uzi Vert should have signed to his own Rich Forever Music.
