R.I.P. Corey Haim-The Lost Boys at Knitting Factory


Via the great folks over at Gothamlist:

“Come pay tribute to the life of the ultimate 1980’s teen heartthrob, Corey Haim. The Knitting Factory will be celebrating his film work with Brooklyn-based comedy group, the Raspberry Brothers. We’ll be toasting the Haim with drink specials (Corey Haim was Canadian-born, so good deals on Moosehead, Labatt’s and Molson) and roasting him on the big screen, with a live mocking of his greatest film, the LOST BOYS. There’ll also be an audience Haim-Off, with prizes for the best Corey rendition, along to clips from: Dream a Little Dream, Lucas, and License to Drive.

About the Lost Boys: Start with a classic vampire-as-metaphor-for-puberty story line, add a dozen or so mullets, throw in two Coreys, a dash of Kiefer Sutherland hamming it up, and one kick-ass soundtrack. Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. (Some blood sucking required.)

Like most kids, Ashley grew up in New Jersey. Unlike most kids the Friedman's televison set acted as a third parent, imbuing young Ashley with the stern moral values of Claire Huxtable, the dramatic tendencies of Brenda Walsh and the earnest hopefulness of the blond kid on Silver Spoons. After graduating from Sarah Lawrence Ashley made her way to the Park Slope area of Brooklyn where she can currently be found reading foreign fashion magazines, scouring ebay for vintage heels, eating out in restaurants and otherwise stretching her meager income as far as it will go in NYC.
