Our Pick: High Places, Glasser, Intricate Machines @ Kerckhoff Grand Saloon at UCLA
It's Monday night in LA and that means the free residencies are aplenty. You've got local singer-songwriter Rocco Deluca (LAist Interview, Review) performing at Spaceland for the penultimate time. Last week's show found famed Québécois producer/musician Daniel Lanois joining Deluca onstage. LA's other prominent and prepossessing singer-songwriter Robert Francis (LAist Interview, Review) will be playing at the Echo for the third night this month as well. And, to complete the triumvirate, local alt-country outfit Olin & the Moon (LAist Interview) are poised to rock the Silver Lake Lounge. But we insist that you head all the way over to UCLA's Kerckhoff Grand Saloon to catch Brooklyn experimental buzz band High Places. LAist favorite Glasser will be kicking off the show.
