If we could time-travel back to any time period, it would definitely have to be the 80’s – we’d hang out with some epic rockstars, wear all of the awesome 80’s clothing and jam out to all of the classic 80’s songs. Well, we all were able to take a step back in time as renowned 80’s rockstars as well as musicians from this generation joined together at the incredible, music-filled Strange 80’s event that took place on May 14th at The Fonda Theatre. Not only was the remarkable event filled with tons of stellar performances, but the best part about it is that all of the proceeds from the concert went to the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, which helps provide financial assistance to musicians and those in the music industry that need help due to illness, disability, or age-related problems.

The phenomenal event featured terrific performances from Tenacious D, “Weird Al” Yankovic, and Sarah Silverman, as well as performances from members of bands including OK Go, Taking Back Sunday, Velvet Revolver, Steel Panther, Filter, Anberlin, Goldfinger, Sugarcult, Anthrax, Precious Kid, Filter, and Honey Honey.

These extraordinary performers had a brilliant time bringing out their own renditions of some 80’s classics. From covers of Prince to Kim Wilde and many other 80’s musicians, the Strange 80’s performers had everyone up on their feet rocking out to all of the exceptional performances and enjoying the great nostalgia of one of the greatest decades ever.

The iconic Scott Ian of Anthrax shared the stage with his wife, Pearl ADay at the event. Scott Ian posted the excellent photo as seen below on his Instagram account and wrote, “The Strange 80’s show was a blast! @pearlcaliforniacountry and @coreytaylor nailed the Prince songs. A Prince cover show for my birthday? Who’s in? And I got to play my Duo Jet! @officialgretsch.”

 

Many other outstanding celebrities were present at the event who are immensely talented stars in both the worlds of acting and music. Finn Wolfhard, star of the fan-favorite Netflix show, Stranger Things hosted the Strange 80s event. The day was an especially exciting one for Finn Wolfhard as he also had his first ever performance with his band, Calpurnia, at the event which truly left everyone in awe.

Finn Wolfhard shared the great photo as seen below through his Instagram account of himself and his band on the red carpet of the event.

VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE: “Stranger Things” Star Finn Wolfhard And His Band, Calpurnia Interview With Alexisjoyvipaccess At The Strange 80s Event!

It was an event filled with all things 80’s – from renowned 80’s rockstars, classic 80’s music, and even a special star from a hit Netflix show that also so happens to take place in the 80’s. The highly-acclaimed and fan-favorite show, Stranger Things is literally everyone’s obsession and we all can’t help but gush over how much we love all of the cast-members, such as the immensely talented actor, Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike Wheeler on the show. Finn Wolfhard continues to prove himself as one accomplished and incredibly gifted actor who has managed to bring us all into the life of Mike Wheeler and allow us to proudly call Stranger Things one of our favorite shows to binge-watch… ever!

Finn Wolfhard is truly such an exceptional and profound actor and we are always left speechless with his impressive acting skills. Next, we can see Finn Wolfhard in the much-anticipated remake of the movie, It, and we know that he will leave us all amazed (and absolutely terrified!) with the 2017 remake of this horror film classic. In addition to being a spectacular actor, Finn Wolfhard is also a sensational musician. He brought out one outstanding performance at the Strange 80s event where he performed with his band, Calpurnia. The Strange 80s event was Calpurnia’s first time performing together and they definitely did a magnificent job and left everyone awe-inspired with their excellent renditions of some iconic 80’s songs. Needless to say, Finn Wolfhard is one of a kind and such a stupendous individual. We look forward to many more of his projects with both his acting and music careers.

I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had a stellar time covering the Strange 80s event that benefitted the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund and had a terrific time interviewing Finn Wolfhard and his band, Calpurnia at the event. Calpurnia dished exclusively to Alexisjoyvipaccess all about what some of their pre-show rituals are, who their musical inspirations are, what are some upcoming projects they are working on that fans can look forward to and so much more only in our VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE interview. Calpurnia even sent out a great message to all of their fans – hear what they had to say in our VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE interview below. Thanks for the awesome interview, Calpurnia!
