Corey Feldman Redux
Wow. A lot has happened in Corey Feldman’s world since City Weekly
spoke with him in advance of Corey and the Angels’ upcoming performance
at Liquid Joe’s tomorrow. After years of talking publicly about being sexually abused as a child actor, Feldman announced a plan to out Hollywood pedophiles in a feature film—but first, he’d need $10 million to fund the project and defend himself legally and physically. So far, the Indiegogo campaign has raised $205,000, but Feldman has already named two of six alleged abusers through appearances on Today
and The Dr. Oz Show
. Although he canceled a string of shows in late October, the SLC show is still happening. Whew! Liquid Joe’s, 1249 E. 3300 South, $20 presale; $25 day of show; $75 meet and greet, 21+, www.liquidjoes.net
Updated Nov. 7: Corey Feldman performance has been postponed until February.
Stonefed, You Topple Over
Although Moab-based jam band Stonefed’s third studio album isn’t quite ready, the State Room show
is still a go. “It got changed to just a birthday show,” says frontman Jon Olschewski, who founded the band 19 years ago after relocating from Missoula, Mont., where he played in the bands The Coop and Stomping Ground. In October 1998. “The album release was postponed due to some mix hang-ups.” He says the band will reschedule as soon as the platter is ready. The State Room, 638 S. State, 9 p.m., $13, 21+, thestateroomslc.com
Tom Bennett Releases Video for “Show Me the Exit Sign”
Best of Utah winner, one-man blues/folk band Tom Bennett, just released his first theatrical music video. “Show Me the Exit Sign,” from his three-track EP I Am Everywhere
, shows a hitchhiking Bennett getting his guitar stolen by bikers in the desert. He’s either left for dead or passes out after running for his life, then he’s rescued by some product-placement-packin’ (locally distilled spirits) polygamist women in heavy makeup. After they play cards and take bottle shots, the women hand him a handgun and some ammo, amd he sets off to reclaim his axe—which the bikers have kindly left propped against a log. While the story could’ve used more attention, the clip has some purdy desert shots of the desert surrounding Gunlock, Utah—as well as some neat aerial footage of the biker gang on the road. And any excuse to listen to Bennett’s earthy, gritty tunes works.
