Wild Times at the Lucky Star
Presented by Pyramid, Inc. at the Moon
Saturday, August 10, 2019


Grab your cowboy hats and get ready for a live Western cowboy musical at The Moon. Wild Times at the Lucky Star is an original boot-scootin' musical featuring a magnificent collection of characters who will steal your heart and have you rolling in the aisles. Watch as two English dandies mosey into a small town in the Old West to sell their wares and end up buying a run-down saloon.

Echo in the Canyon
August 10 - August 17, 2019


Learn about one of the most exciting moments in American music through the artists who lived through it. Echo In The Canyon celebrates the explosion of popular music that came out of LA's Laurel Canyon in the mid-60s as folk went electric and The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield and The Mamas and the Papas gave birth to the California Sound.
