Start stocking up on excuses for Tuesday morning tardiness

Stock up on excuses for Tuesday morning tardiness. Four of November’s music residencies fall on Monday, making it easy to kick off the work week with a late night. Here’s where to go and who to see in Los Angeles during November 2014.

Dorothy at Bootleg Hi-Fi (November 3, 10, 17 and 24)
The project of lead singer Dorothy Martin has already accumulated more than 100,000 YouTube views for its first music video, “After Midnight.” The band is fresh from gigs in London and Paris.
Think: The Black Keys with added sleaze.

Wartime Recitals at the Echo (November 3, 10, 17 and 24)
The band released its debut EP in early October and has played shows at the Silverlake Lounge, Taix, and Club Los Globos leading up to November’s residency. The quintet records as a much larger band with brass, strings, and a glockenspiel.
Think: If Arcade Fire had formed while relaxing on a beach instead of freezing in Montreal

The Diamond Light at the Satellite (November 3, 10, 17 and 24)
The L.A-based trio has been gigging around L.A. in 2014, playing venues like Silverlake Lounge and the Satellite along with bars like Pour Vous, Good Times at Davey Wayne’s and Harvard & Stone. The band also released an EP earlier this year.
Think: Bluesy-rock that’s too clean for the roadhouse

Dreaming Bull at the Silverlake Lounge (November 3, 10, 17 and 24)
Despite just releasing its debut, self-titled album earlier this year, Dreaming Bull tracks have already been heard on TV shows such as Suits and Sons of Anarchy. Drummer Gabe Rowland has played with Moby and Fiona Apple, while Nic Capelle’s musical projects have opened for Daft Punk and played at the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
Think: Vintage blues from your parent’s record collection without the hisses and pops

Clockwise at the Satellite (November 5, 12, 20 and 26)
The Aussie-born, L.A.-residing songwriter (born Andy Kelly) has been getting heavy airplay on KROQ for his latest single “Hopeless.” In between live performances, he has spun DJ sets at Sayers Club and Bronson Bar.
Think: Danceable indie pop of an LCD Soundsystem-meets-David Bowie variety

Roses at Bootleg Hi-Fi (November 9, 16, 23 and 30)
The trio completed a west coast swing with buzzy English duo Slow Club, opened for Tanlines at the Sayers Club, and will play a show at Pappy and Harriet’s in Pioneertown with headliner Dum Dum Girls. Guitarist Juan Velasquez was a member of punk fave Abe Vigoda (the band not the actor).
Think:
Synth-laden new wave that would set the right mood for a Stone Roses show
