Cabaret-style show headlines at Unity

Eva Moon and the Lunatics are bringing their unique blend of music and comedy to North Bend's Unity Theater for a night of singing and joking on Saturday, Nov. 17.

Entitled "My Perfect Life ... and Other Delusions," the cabaret-style show covers topics like love, sex, technology and pop culture through jazzy, funky songs that are laced with humor and irony.

Stand-up comedians Robin Fairbanks and JeanAnn O'Brien will also perform during the two-hour show, bringing a bit of variety to the evening.

The band's material includes songs like "Cash from Nigeria," a commentary on e-mail spam; "Switcheroo," a look at sex change operations; and "UPS Guy," an ode to young men in tight shorts.

Describing herself as more topical than political, Moon's ideas come from just about anywhere.

"They're things that strike me as amusing or interesting," Moon said.

Much of the material comes from Moon's own life experiences. "Switcheroo" was inspired by a close friend who underwent a sex change operation. After her parents bought an RV and hit the open road, Moon came up with "Roadzilla," the tale of a runaway Winnebago.

A Web site developer by day, Moon has long had a love for music and performing.
