The night culminates in a spook-tacular show by Lost Moon Radio, featuring all our most hair-raising sketches and songs of yore. It’s an evening you won’t soon survive– er, forget. HA-HA-HA-HA-HAAAAAAAA!

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.

LMR NYC Tour

Lost Moon Radio: Journeys

Lost Moon Radio makes its first NYC appearance with an evening of its award-winning sketches and songs exploring the theme of “Journeys.” Three shows, three chances to see this “hilarious hour of sketch, music and a over arching story that plays throughout” (LAist). The Huffington Post calls Lost Moon Radio “rock and roll comedy that exceeds expectations … silly while avoiding stupid, edgy without being obnoxious and fresh without feeling forced. The ensemble is a seamless display of talents in absolute cohesion.”

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.
