Free Members-Only Screening, A Most Violent Year

LACMA

5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

7:30pm

The third film from writer/director J.C. Chandor—whose previous films include his directorial debut, 2011’s Margin Call, which won Film Independent Spirit Awards for Best First Feature and the Robert Altman Award for Ensemble Acting, and 2013’s All Is Lost, starring Robert Redford—is set during a landmark year of sorts for New York. The film takes place in 1981, which, according to statistical data, is said to be the most violent year in the city’s history. This period for New York was rife with tumult and financial upheaval; it was just six years earlier that Manhattan defaulted on its loans and inspired the legendary New York Post headline after then President Ford refused a Federal bailout: “Ford to NYC: Drop Dead.” The violence in Chandor’s newest work reflects not only the physical threat contained in Manhattan but the relationship dangers faced by a young married couple Abel (Oscar Isaac) and Anna (Jessica Chastain), as both are forced to confront the shifting tides of violence as it relates to them and to the world outside their doors—especially after Abel’s own connection to inflicting pain become evident. Spirit Award winner Chandor and co-star Isaac will be in attendance for a Q&A after the film.

Dustbowl Revival

Troubadour

West Hollywood, CA 90069

10:00pm

“In a city like Los Angeles, home to musical stars in nearly every known genre, handing out the Best Live Band title is not easy. But the free-thinking local collective Dustbowl Revival's upbeat, old-school, All-American sonic safaris exemplify everything shows should be: hot, spontaneous, engaging and, best of all, a pleasure to hear.” — LA WEEKLY

"Americana swing that was so fun I went back to see them again the next day." — ROLLING STONE

The Dustbowl Revival is a Venice, California-based collective that merges old school bluegrass, gospel, pre-war blues and the hot swing of New Orleans to form a spicy roots cocktail. Known for their roaring live sets, Dustbowl bravely brings together many styles of traditional American music. Some call it string band-brass band mash up. Imagine Old Crow Medicine Show teaming up with Louis Armstrong’s Hot Fives and Sevens, or Bob Dylan and The Band jamming with Benny Goodman and his orchestra in 1938. It’s infectious, joyous music - a youthful take on time-worn American traditions.
