Sapphire Sisters ARH 7

Lost Moon Radio’s beloved female folk duo The Sapphire Sisters are finally getting their very own show (fuck you, glass ceilings) and you’re invited.

Our friends at Crooked Grin Theater are hosting an epic autumn bash, Crooked Grin Carnivale, featuring live music, comedy, cirque performance, virtual reality films, and a full half-hour set from the Sapphire Sisters (along with a couple of special guests). And tickets are just $9! Details below.

In the meantime, if you’re unfamiliar with the Sapphire Sisters, or if you’d just like to revisit their soulful acoustic sound, enjoy this classic track, “Mr. Boots.”

Now come watch these mistresses of melody and mayhem sing their hits, share their road stories, and maybe shiv someone in the audience.

The Virgil Exterior - NightAfter a sold-out performance at Westside Comedy last month, we’ve decided to bring back our Rebels & Outlaws show for one more night, this time on the Eastside in our first appearance at a fantastic comedy and music venue: The Virgil.

An hour of sketches and songs exploring the ne’er-do-wells and game changers that we love to misunderstand, Lost Moon Radio: Rebels & Outlaws features castmembers Frank Smith, Lauren Flans, Ryan Harrison, Dan Oster, and Jen Burton, with Will Greenberg as Jupiter Jack. Live rock n’roll by our house band, The Moon Units, featuring Dylan Ris, Brenton Kossak, Eric Kalver, and Dave Lang.

The Lost Moon Rebel Video Contest

But hey, maybe you’re like, “This all sounds great, but can I see the show for free?” Okay, you’ve convinced us. Post a video of yourself doing something rebellious (10 seconds to 1 minute) on the Lost Moon Radio Facebook page with the hashtag #lostmoonrebels, and we’ll give you a FREE TICKET to our May 30th Rebels and Outlaws show. Whether you shoot it on an iPhone or an Arri Alexa, all videos are welcome. This rebellion display can be something small (like drinking white wine with steak) or significant (overthrowing a government). It can be funny or it can be brave. We leave it in your hands.

AND if your video gets the most likes by Thursday the 28th at midnight, Lost Moon will pay your bar tab for the evening (up to $50). So, share your video with your friends and we’ll see you at The Virgil on May 30th!

This is it, guys. The shocking Season Finale of DAN’S CAT VIDEOS. A new foe emerges, and DeNiro faces his greatest challenge yet – it’s the cliffhanger you’ll be talking about all summer! #danscats

Obviously, we’re sad to be leaving these lovable felines for the time being, but there’s more from Lost Moon Radio on the horizon. You can see the show live in LA on Saturday, May 30th. Click here for details.

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our new series DAN’S CAT VIDEOS! The first two are live now. We’re releasing more every Wednesday for the next two months. Enjoy! #danscats

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.
