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!

Hey, you seem like you could use some music and entertainment this weekend, and maybe just being in the company of some cool people. Consider the latest installment of SUNSETS AT GREAT SCOTT, on Sunday, November 20th, at 4pm. The line-up includes the Story Pirates, The Silver Lake Chorus, touring Nashville twosome Pilgrim, singer-songwriter Jesse Macht (your host), and our personal favorites…
THE SAPPHIRE SISTERS, Lost Moon Radio’s own beloved female folk duo (in a performance featuring Martha Marion, Jen Burton, Michael Wells, Dylan Ris, and Lauren Flans), who promise to surround your troubled heart in waves of pulsing harmony and sisterhood.
It’s all happening in a beautiful backyard-with-a-view in Echo Park, and it’s all FREE (thanks to a sponsorship from Airstream). There’s even free valet, or you can get 20% off a Lyft ride to and/or from the show with the code SSAGS. Warm clothes, picnic blankets, and beach chairs are encouraged.
Doesn’t that sound like a pretty great way to round out your weekend? More details here.
Lost Moon Radio is proud to return to the stage with one of our most acclaimed episodes: NIGHT.
For two consecutive nights, we will be reprising our live show NIGHT, a crowd favorite named ‘Best in Comedy’ and ‘Top of the Fringe’ at the Hollywood Fringe Festival in 2012. Whether you’re catching this installment for the very first time, or enjoying it again for the first time in years, this is one you won’t want to miss. Join us at The Lyric-Hyperion on July 8th & 9th at 8:00pm for the show, featuring an assortment of our most celebrated, moonlight-appropriate songs and sketches along with some brand-new material!
Limited seating! Get your seats, grab a drink, and let’s dig into all things nocturnal.

02 Mar / campfireball – 3/9
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.
Golden Road Brewing
5410 W. San Fernando Rd, Los Angeles, CA 90039
(The show is in the very cool back room that you probably didn’t even know was there, entered through the Pub.)
Monday, March 9th
(No reservation necessary. Awesome food and beer available on site.)
After 146 years, we finally have a Little Women the way it was meant to be seen: live on stage in Hollywood with Lauren Flans playing Jo March.
WOMEN is the New York hit that won Best Comedy at this year’s Hollywood Fringe Festival and is now returning to The Asylum Theatre for a limited run. This fast paced comedy is a mash-up of Louisa May Alcott’s classic Little Women and HBO’s critically acclaimed Girls, delivering a smartly crafted and hilarious 55-minute show.
Note: The show is sure to be excellent every night, but die-hard Lauren Flans fans (“flans”) should note that she will not be appearing in the 9/13 and 9/27 performances.
The show opens on Sept.5th and tickets are $15: http://womentheshow.com/. (There’s also a preview on Thursday, Sept.4th, to which you can obtain half-price $7.50 tickets with the code “preview”: http://bit.ly/bethdies)
WOMEN is written by Chiara Atik, based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott, and directed by Stephanie Ward. In addition to Lauren, the cast features Erika Rankin, Jacquie Walters, Brigitte Valdez, Chris Farrah, Clayton Farris, Joseph Patrick O’Malley, Ben Moroski, and J.B. Waterman. Plus lighting design by Lost Moon Radio’s own Brandon Baruch!
12 Jun / Lauren Flans Returns to Wild ‘N Out

She wants to know what you’ve got for her! Nick Cannon is concerned about her mental well-being! Wild N’ Out: Season 6 premieres Wednesday, July 2nd, at 11/10c on MTV2.
In the meantime, you can bask in Lauren’s comedic rapping and elaborately choreographed dance skills LIVE this month in Lost Moon Radio’s Million Dollar Hair, an original comedy tribute concert now playing at the 2014 Hollywood Fringe Festival.
