LMR Last Christmas Teaser

It’s hard to believe that it’s the last Christmas ever. But as we all know, it is. So Lost Moon will be sending off the centuries-old tradition in style with our biggest holiday show ever! There’s a big batch of new songs and sketches, mulled together with some of our seasonal classics. And on Friday and Saturday nights, stick around after the show for a holiday party! Join Lost Moon Radio at The Lyric-Hyperion Theatre & Cafe as we bid farewell to over seventeen-hundred years of egg nog, gift-giving, and gathering ’round the Christmas tree. We’ve saved the best one for last!

If you love mid-’90s, female singer-songwriters, UCB has a show for you. On Friday, September 16th, you’re invited to the Lilith Fair 20 Year Reunion Show, a celebratory musical tribute to the defining Amero-Canadian feminist touring festival of the last century.

In addition to being hosted by Sarah McLachlan and Ani DiFranco (Kait Thompson and Kat Palardy) and featuring appearances by many other returning Lilith Fair stars, the night’s entertainment will also feature three Lost Moon Radio favorites: January Schonfeld (Leslie Korein) from Million Dollar Hair and our ever-popular folk rock duo the Sapphire Sisters (Jen Burton and Martha Marion), who will be headlining.

On Monday, March 9th, at 8pm, Lost Moon Radio will perform a short set in one of Los Angeles’s most unique and inventive variety show events, campfireball. Built very loosely around a theme, in this case “the lonely rovers of Mars,” campfireball is a fully immersive, community experience where the audience has no idea what’s around the corner.

Past campfireballs have included musicians, comedians, storytellers, short films, online dating, ponies, the world’s largest deliverable pizza, haircuts, campfire flavored ice cream, school bus field trips and more. We don’t know anybody who’s seen it who didn’t find the whole thing magical. (Yes, we said magical. Don’t be a dick about it.) And the whole show is free.

Lost Moon Radio: The Solo Show

After the spectacle and pageantry of Million Dollar Hair, we’re stripping things down to the essentials for Lost Moon’s July offering. And by “essentials,” we mean comedy hip-hop songs and historical monologues. It’s Lost Moon Radio: The Solo Show.

Join Lauren Flans (star of MTV2’s Wild ‘N Out) and Frank Smith (regular viewer of MTV2’s Wild ‘N Out) for an evening of raps you won’t forget and monologues you also won’t forget. Accompanied by three of Lost Moon Radio’s talented musicians. Plus: performance by two-man improv team Squidge! Hosted by Lost Moon Radio regular Galloway Allbright.

We’re headed to the always fabulous Hollywood Fringe Festival for our fourth year, and we’re bringing a brand-new show: Million Dollar Hair. Come celebrate the life and death of fictional music icon Bernie Schonfeld in this unforgettable tribute concert. Over five decades in the industry, the groundbreaking music producer, record label owner, and amateur homeopath made history with his nontraditional taste and unforgettable haircut. Learn of his adventures (and scandals!) from the rock stars, legends, and family members who knew Bernie best in this song (and joke!) filled evening. If you combined Dylan going electric with the premiere of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring and poured it over the Beatles at Shea Stadium, that event wouldn’t be half as big as Million Dollar Hair.

Needless to say, we’re super excited to be returning to the festival where we nabbed two “Best of Comedy” awards and the 2012 “Top of the Fringe” prize. Get your tickets now for one of our nine performances!
