If that wasn’t the case, New Kids on the Block, Poison and Paula Abdul would never book a venue.
I thought it was the cutest thing I'd ever heard," Leikam said.
Though the two dated only briefly, Leikam said she stayed in touch over the past eight years."He (Haim) made nothing a secret, but he also really didn't have anything to apologize for.
I am still baffled by how many people paid money to see Corey Feldman.
Again, knowing Feldman primarily as a self-aware reality TV oddity, I completely underestimated how many people are die-hard fans of ’80s public figures, no matter how far removed from their legacy they are.
Feldman’s discography was the first hint my hypothesis would not flesh out: it’s consistent with the self-aware/self-indulgent, late ’80s/early ’90s rock that Feldman’s performed since 1992.
They were played alongside a cover medley of some of the most essential songs in the rock canon, including the Beatles, Cyndi Lauper, and Little Richard.After what I witnessed, though, I think I’m only half right.Feldman’s Jackson-inspired attire, and the Angels’ stage costumes that included LED wings and non-synchronized white negligees reminded me of not the best and not the worst burlesque performances I’ve seen around Portland.The Angels, including their newly 21-year-old guitar player, performed original material unassociated with Feldman that was virtually inaudible.The 21-year-old played a guitar medley that bounced between more of the American canon, which I recognized as including Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” the White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army,” and Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train.” At some point, someone played an electric violin on what I think was “Stand by Me” by Ben E.The Angels are in a symbiotic relationship with Feldman: not outright exploiting the public figure, but allowing themselves to be used as a symptom of the system that physically and emotionally tortured icons from Judy Garland to Carrie Fisher to death, a system that thrives to this day.
