The nation’s economy can either make you laugh — or cry.
Musical group Eva Moon and the Lunatics will bring out the laughter, in a weekend performance aimed at finding the funny in those all-too-common fiscal woes.
The band’s new show, “Eva Moon’s Stimulus Package,” is 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 28, at Valley Center Stage.
“The best way to get through the recession is by entertaining yourself, in a way that can make you forget the state of your bank account,” said band leader Eva Moon.
Moon penned songs that ponder ways to seduce the bail-out man, or discover where all the trillions of dollars that got lost in the recession went to (Moon’s theory: Nigerian e-mail scammers).
The band’s recession-proof performance includes a fusion of music and comedy. In between the songs, two stand-up comedians, Bryley Hull and Lizzy Pilcher, both of Seattle, will perform.
“Stimulus Package” listeners are advised to leave their children at home with a babysitter. The Lunatics’ performance does not include bad language, but they do deal in adult themes and innuendo.
Valley Center Stage is located at 119 North Bend Way, above Singletrack Cycles. Tickets to the North Bend show are $12.50. Tickets are available online at www.valleycenterstage.org.
