“Louie” Viewing Party at Fontana’s for Local Band Prospector

Posted on: September 1st, 2011 at 10:12 am by

Last winter, we caught hilarious comedian Louis C.K. filming his eponymous FX series on Grand Street, steps west of Eldridge. He had just completed shooting a scene with “Loud Rock Band” (as referred to in the script) inside local rock bar Fontana’s. Turns out that band is Lower East Side-based Prospector, and the episode premieres tonight. To celebrate the occasion, Fontana’s is throwing a viewing party for episode 12, which airs at 10:30 pm.
