Though he was only born in 2002, Stranger Things actor Finn Wolfhard is the perfect choice to host the retro-themed concert Strange '80s. The soundtrack to the first season of the Netflix series, which returns in October, featured such bands as The Clash, New Order, Joy Division, Echo and the Bunnymen, and Modern English. If you're nostalgic for similar music, tonight's lineup features more than two dozen singers, actors and comedians paying tribute to the decade's biggest pop, rock, metal and new wave songs. Among them are members of The Go-Go's, Anthrax, Slipknot, Velvet Revolver, OK Go, Filter, Taking Back Sunday, Anberlin, Goldfinger, Sugarcult, Deap Vally, Steel Panther and Wolfhard's own band, Calpurnia. They'll be joined by Tenacious D, "Weird Al" Yankovic and Sarah Silverman, in addition to Stranger Things' Chelsea Talmadge, The Goldbergs' Hayley Orrantia and 13 Reasons Why's Dylan Minnette. Proceeds benefit Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, a Fullerton-based nonprofit that provides financial aid, medical care and other assistance to struggling professional musicians.
