Listening Party Presents: Dave Ross
Hosted by Evan Rabalais
Dave Ross is a stand-up comedian in Los Angeles. Sometimes his comedy is vulnerable and personal. Other times his comedy is loud, stupid and about butts. You can find him stumbling around L.A. and the country, performing at every festival, club, theater, bar, fire hall or bombed-out stone building that will have him. He's in a sketch group called WOMEN that makes sketches for Comedy Central and IFC's Comedy Crib. He hosts the podcast Terrified on the Nerdist Network. He won a MOTH Grand Slam, he got interviewed on WTF with Marc Maron, and he told a story on Comedy Central's Drunk History. He likes his cat. His cat is dope.
Show @ 8PM

Baton Rouge Gallery's Movies & Music on the Lawn - Presented by Whole Foods Market - continues this month against the backdrop of BREC's City Park. Over the past 18 years, the popular summer film series has paired up dozens of iconic silent films with the best local, contemporary bands in our area. Each band performs a never-before-heard score for the film, which is projected on a huge inflatable screen on the lawn behind the gallery.
The screenings begin at 8 p.m. (or sundown – whichever comes last) and the $7 price of admission includes free bottomless popcorn.
This year's series is once again presented by Whole Foods Market, and in honor of BRG's 50th anniversary, we'll be celebrating a few of the very best pairings of bands and films from the program's recent history.
The next Movies & Music on the Lawn presentation, sponsored by Forum 35, will be held on Saturday, June 25 with the film that took Oscar by storm in 2012 and reinvigorated interest in silent film, "The Artist." Returning to score "The Artist," as they did in the summer of 2013, is the popular local band Captain Green.

The Manship Theatre is proud to present a screening of “After The Spill,” a film by award winning filmmaker Jon Bowermaster.
“After The Spill” is an in-depth look at the BP oil spill and the effect of the spill and Big Oil’s exploration and production operations on the Louisiana coast. The film features James Carville, John Barry, Nick Spitzer, Gen. Russell Honore and others directly affected by the spill.
Ten years ago Hurricane Katrina devastated the coast of Louisiana. Five years later the BP operated Deepwater Horizon exploded and spilled more than 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, the worst ecological disaster in North American history. Those events along with other man made and natural factors contribute to accelerating land loss.
“Louisiana’s coastal marshes and fisheries are part of America’s patrimony,” Bowermaster said, “they belong to the whole country, not just Louisiana. We’re hoping that ‘After The Spill’ can help initiate a national dialog on that disappearing coast.”
Bowermaster’s empathetic look at the state and its people and their relationship to water is revealed in this thought provoking and moving film.
Narrated by Academy Award Winner Melissa Leo and featuring a score by Louisiana guitar legend Sonny Landreth, “After The Spill” reaches deep into the travails and the joy of life in a complicated and compelling place.
“After The Spill” was co-produced by Baton Rouge residents Winifred Reilly, Kevin Reilly Jr., and Cyril Vetter.
