In anticipation of their March 4 album debut, What Made Milwaukee Famous will be in LA for five shows this week | Photo by Cambria Harkey

As usual on Mondays, it's a big residency night in Los Angeles. Lots of free shows or, at least cheap ones, to pick from. Outside the residency radar, Buddyhead is throwing a belated Christmas party tonight at La Cita. Santa Casper will be there for you to sit on his lap and tell him if you've been naughty or nice and drink specials are $2 Tecate, $3 Domestic beer, $4 Import Beer and claims of cheap Jager shots.

Also What Made Milwaukee Famous will be playing the first of five Los Angeles shows at Spaceland tonight along with February residents, Pity Party, who we interviewed a few weeks ago.
