Nightcrawler with Dan Gilroy & Rene Russo

Hammer Museum

10899 Wilshire Blvd, CA 90024, CA 0

7:30pm

A Q&A with writer/director Dan Gilroy and actor Rene Russo follows the screening.

Dan Gilroy's debut film takes the viewer deep into nocturnal Los Angeles and into the world of his singular creation, freelance videographer Louis Bloom. As played by an electric Jake Gyllenhaal, Louis is opportunistic, intelligent, and a sociopath. The film is a commentary on the 'if it bleeds, it leads' ethos of contemporary television journalism and an intense character study of a unique twenty-first century creature who lives on the fringe of society until he discovers a path to power in the media world. Rene Russo shines as a new producer whose ethics have been corroded by her profession and who meets her match (and then some) in the mercurial Bloom. Gilroy, inspired by the work of pioneering photographer Weegee, creates a memorable tableau of Los Angeles as a back lot of grisly crime scenes and shady operators. Nightcrawler noir not to be missed.

Fishbone

Troubadour

West Hollywood, CA 90069

7:30pm

Celebrating 25+ groundbreaking years, FISHBONE has been trailblazing their way through the history of American Ska, Funk, Punk, Rock Fusion and (so-called) Black Rock since starting their professional career in Los Angeles' burgeoning, Alternative Rock music scene of the mid-1980s. Their sound has often been imitated, but never duplicated. They have toured worldwide with such bands as the Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Roots, Les Claypool/Primus, Fela Kuti, George Clinton, The Dead Kennedys and many more. Angelo Moore's ability to combine thought-provoking, humorous social commentary with FISHBONE's frenzied, up-tempo music and frantic, euphorically entertaining stage show has cultivated their undisputed reputation as one of the best live acts in music history.
