There are a number of interests that unite Lost Moon Radio, but quite high on the list is a shared love of documentaries, sitting in front of bookcases pretending to be experts, and Ken Burns.

Clearly, we’re not alone in our feelings, as evidenced by the enthusiasm for this project from such diverse internet sources as Indiewire and Slate.

But there’s one endorsement that we will probably cherish above all others.

Lost Moon Radio: Mix Tape

We had such a blast with Lost Moon Radio: The Solo Show, that we’re coming at you with another one-off summer offering, but this time on a larger scale and at Westside Comedy. We’re calling it Lost Moon Radio: Mix Tape.

It’s 1995. Chelsea is 15. And she has one way to win the love of her life/school year: a MIX TAPE. Fortunately she has the full Lost Moon cast and band to help her. See it happen LIVE at the finest comedy venue west of the 405.

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!

Lost Moon’s 5th Anniversary Blow Out

In the spring of 2009, we crammed six actors, a rock band, and 40 of our dearest friends into a Lost Moon Radio tiny theater above a bar for the first Lost Moon Radio show. Since that night, we’ve produced fifteen original episodes, dozens of one-offs and special events, videos, podcasts, a glam rock musical, two high-concept awards shows, and literally hundreds of pages of unpublished erotic fan fiction. Now it’s time to celebrate! On May 17th, join us for a night of our favorite sketches and songs from the last five years.
