Have you lost those magical Christmas feelings you once had? Are things just a little bit less special than they used to be? Of course, they are!
This song is for you, Adult Christmas is here.

No scheduled shows at the moment, sorry! That could change soon though so keep an eye on this page.
"If you can't win, sing about losing as well as you can", is a quote that best describes the intense self-reflective dark folk-pop songs of Moon Moon Moon. It's no coincidence either, that this quote is by Mark Lohmann, who writes the songs and online biographies for the band.
The band consists of five humans; Mark Lohmann, Steven Jasperse, Stef Koenis, Jari Deelstra and Jelle Crooijmans. On stage, they play music that makes some of the people in the crowd say "Sparklehorse, Eels, Youth Lagoon, Sun Kil Moon".
Together with the original visuals that Mark brings to the stage, the shows take you through a painfully detailed journey of incredibly personal stories that somehow feel relatable.
One moment you're sitting in the back of the car, thinking of evil plans to take down radio 3FM, because they didn't recommend your band, and shortly after you're drowning in self-hatred because you're too shy to climb up on stage when your favorite band Belle and Sebastian is playing.
