Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein play their soundtrack to cult TV hit Stranger Things live. Serving up a hearty slice of '80s nostalgia, Stranger Things became the runaway TV hit of 2016, inviting viewers into the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana. Dixon and Stein's soundtrack — heavily indebted to the work of Jean-Michel Jarre and John Carpenter — is inseparable from the adventures of Eleven and the gang, with the feelings of childhood camaraderie and unsettling eeriness amplified by the synth-laden score. For tonight's show, the duo will perform music not only from the first season, but also from the second season — for which they have added new elements and styles of compositions — alongside a supernatural neon light show.
Dixon and Stein are half of the Austin-based group S U R V I V E, and won an Emmy Award for their work on the first season of Stranger Things.
