L.A.’s November Music Residencies: LP, Summer Twins, and More

Give thanks this month for a bounty of talent
66

Between holiday disruptions and the city-encompassing Red Bull Sound Select 30 Days in L.A., some venues may have been hesitant to book month-long residencies for November. However, while this November may not be the greatest bounty of free shows in terms of pure numbers, there’s a high level of talent on display throughout the month. The residency lineup for Los Angeles for November, 2015:

Summer Twins at the Echoplex (November 2, 9, 16, and 23)
Between performing at the final two shows of Jenny Lewis’ “The Voyager” tour and opening for Sharon Jones in the Dap Kings—not to mention releasing their debut album in early October—this Riverside-based quartet has had a busy year. Keeping it lo-fi, each night of the residency will feature a different “zine pack,” with goodies including buttons, stickers, and more.
Think: A dreamy indie pop soundtrack to beachside summer dusks.

LP at No Vacancy (November 3, 10, and 17)
The veteran singer-songwriter recently signed with Vagrant Records (home of buzzy acts like The 1975, AlunaGeorge, and Band of Skulls), and released a new single, “Muddy Waters.” Her first full-length for the label is expected in early 2016; it will be her second in two years after a ten-year gap in her discography.
Think: Bluesy rock-and-roll with uncommon soul and an arena-ready voice.

Elle Belle at the Satellite (November 2, 9, 16, 23, and 30)
This Christopher Pappas solo project (you might know the multi-instrumentalist from Everyday Visuals and Miracle Parade) released a new single, “Failed Dreamz,” at the end of October. That song is just one of a reported 23 on his upcoming Baptistina I and II.
Think: Fuzzy synth rock too messy for an ’80s mall but just right for a tallboy and a dark dance floor.

No Win at Bootleg Bar (November 2, 9, 16, and 30)
Danny Nogueiras debuted this solo project earlier this year and has already performed at the Echo and the Regent, along with releasing an EP’s worth of songs. No Win is a part of the extended family of local favorite FIDLAR; Nogueiras used to play drums on a part-time basis for the band.
Think: The powerest and poppiest of power pop, straight out of the turn of the century.
