Cool is in.
It’s back in style and it won’t stop coming. Not cool like neat-o, cool like Cool. We’re talking Big Cool. The cool it takes to make it in this jive town full of false fronts and bogus backs. Moxie. Jimmy Carter had it, Taylor Swift has it and so does every single last one of our guests on The Moon this Tuesday, May 21, at 8PM at Union Pool!
Gaze Steadily at Our Ice-Cool Guests!
Nod Knowingly at Our Famous Features!
Kick it with The Moon Players: Jordan Clifford, Camille Harris, and Tim Skinner! No big deal.
Hosted by Bob Walles and Nat Towsen
Streaming LIVE if you’re too cool to live in NYC. We understand.

If you were at our last show, you know that our friend Kenny Pickett is recording his first real, fully-produced album. Why don’t we let him tell you a bit more about it himself…
Click here to watch Kenny’s Kickstarter video.
Anyone who donates at least a dollar will receive a digital copy of the album. But a pledge of $25 or more will get you a physical copy of the album plus a print of the awesome album art above, designed by The Moon’s graphic designer, Tad Kimball.
At any level of donation, you can’t go wrong supporting independent artists. Pledge a donation to ARTpocalypse today!
We had a great time on Tuesday and we hope you did too. Whether you were watching at home or streaming the show online, thank you for tuning in and supporting us.
Thank you to our fantastic guests, Kevin Allison, Mike O’Brien, Union Street Preservation Society, and Will Shaw. You were all more enthusiastic than we could have asked for.
Thank you to our crew: Tech director Lee Goffin-Bonenfant, live stream director Josh Grob, live stream cameraman Dan Zimmer, merch lady Brandi LaCen, and tickettaker Peter Naas.
Thank you to our sponsors, Forbidden Planet and Prestone Printing. Thanks to our streaming partners DailyMotion. And thank you to the good people at Union Pool (especially Ed, Leah, and Bravo).
Thank you to Anya Garrett for taking the photo above and many more excellent photos (coming soon, watch this space) of our show.
Lastly, we would like to thank James T. Beard (the T stands for “The”). James was a member of The Moon long before our first show and has been with us ever since. He has contributed characters, props, costumes, videos, and formidable beards. He is soon leaving for Los Angeles, so he was sent off on Tuesday (pictured above) with the traditional incantation:
James T. Beard, you will live on in our history, in our memories, in our minds, and on our website, but will always be dead to us in our hearts.
We all have issues.
Thank you from The Moon.
We had a great time on
St. Patrick’s Day Tuesday and we hope you did too. We would like to genuinely thank everyone who helped to make that show possible. We couldn’t, probably wouldn’t, and definitely couldn’t have done it without you.
Thank you to our fantastic guests, John Flynn, Emily Heller, Leo Allen, and The Gregory Brothers. You were all hilarious, and occasionally touching.
Thank you to our crew of skilled professionals: our tech director Lee Goffin-Bonenfant, Brandi Lacen at the merch table, Peter Naas at the door, and photographer Steve Conrad, who took the above photo (and many more, coming soon!).
Thank you to the good people at Union Pool: Taylor on sound, Ed behind the bar, and Johnny and Bravo on security.
Lastly, thank you to our sponsors, Forbidden Planet, Prestone Printing, and Herradura Tequila.
The ides of March are upon us and you know what that means: You still have a month to file your taxes, but you should probably stab Julius Caesar if you haven’t gotten around to it yet. Don’t worry, though. The Julian calendar is 13 days behind ours, so you still have plenty of time to get to Union Pool for The Moon this Tuesday, March 19 at 8PM!
Our friend Julian from high school was always 13 minutes behind, and he says “Killer lineup, man.”
