Month-long residencies are one of the best ways to catch up-and-coming bands in Los Angeles. You have at least four times to catch a band, and each time, if they are gaining popularity over each show, it will be harder to see them. Last Thursday at their final residency concert, The Airborne Toxic Event played a sold out show with another 300 fans not getting in at the door. That's how crazy residencies can be. Catch 'em while you can. Here's your February line-up:

The Henry Clay People @ The Echo (Free), Echo Park
Rickie Lee Jones @ Echoplex ($20-25), Echo Park
NOTE: Shows Canceled due to Sickness:Robert Francis @Silverlake Lounge (Free), Silver Lake
Pity Party @ Spaceland (Free), Silver Lake
Smash Fashion & DJ Audio Puppet @Crash Mansion ($3), Downtown
We Barbarians @ Detroit Bar (Free), Costa Mesa
