With our heavy rains this week, we have been required to move the venue
away from Warren Field. The concert will now be at the Clatsop County
Fairgrounds, located about 4 miles southeast of downtown Astoria at
92937 Walluski Loop, Astoria. We will route our shuttles from
Astoria's hotels and the park and ride out to the Fairgrounds and there is parking on site, too.
This indoor venue offers several nice changes for our logistics team and
a dry, warm venue for all of us! Same time as before, just a new
I am really excited to see the show, hope you all will join us!
I actually totally enjoyed the concert. i did not think i would like truth movement, but i thought it was great. I was right by the speakers, so maybe I am missing something you all did? I thought one of the last songs he did he sounded really fantastic on.. "So Simple"
Dont get me wrong I like feldman and all that he does, but it just sounded to me that he was trying to hard with his voice and the harmonizing could have been better. to each thier own, still was a great time..=D
It's really a shame there were no conventional concert refreshments available. Even the way that backup venue could make any crowd seem small, with drinks that crowd could've been hoppin. My friends and I doubled back to that nearest convenience store and couldn't stop laughing at the surreal excellence of it all. We felt sorry for all the sober disappointees (and for Corey Feldman for some reason I haven't yet pinpointed) but it was all definitely worth it.
I suppose what surprised me about CF's band was that it seemed to take itself more seriously than people are going to take any celeb typecast as a child star, regardless of how good he or the band as a whole actually is. Their Pink Floyd and Lauper songs were spot-on. I stopped gawking and actually started rocking out for those. He can actually do the Michael Jackson thing surprisingly well but without at least a slight humor element to the entire Corey Feldman as rock star bit, it's just not gonna fly. Nevertheless, he looks great, handles himself well, and deserves major credit for his huge efforts make the whole event much more significant.

Whiskey Rebellion.. wow.. what amazing musicians! It was sad though like you said that so many people left. When I turned around.. there was like 40 ppl.. it was insane. It was well worth it staying through to the end because he was nice enough to stay and sign some autographs and get some photos.
