Corey Feldman and his band played the Parish Room at the House of Blues on Sunday night. The opening act Vanessa the drag queen, opened the show with a fun and interactive acoustic set playing some of her original work, along with several covers of popular songs spanning several decades.
Corey Feldman rose to fame in the 1980's starring in several iconic movies like The Goonies, The Lost Boys, Gremlins and Stand by Me. He released his first studio album, Love Left in 1992 and went on to release 3 more albums over the next 20 years.
The Parish Room at the House of Blues is a small and intimate venue, making the 80-100 people at the show feel like so many more. Feldman hit the stage around 9:30PM. After the first song, Feldman apologized for the small size of the stage, stating that even though it was a small stage, he still planned to give us the performance of a lifetime. Feldman definitely held up his end of the bargain and went on to put on a surprisingly entertaining show. Packed with costume changes, Michael Jackson inspired dance moves, covers of songs from his movies like "Stand by Me," and "Cry Little Sister," Feldman put his whole heart into the show. The small venue and the small crowd didn't seem to bother him at all and he performed like he was at a sold out arena show the entire time, truly giving his fans the performance that he promised.
