Silver Lake’s legit little music venue offers up some of the best local music in the city every Monday night… for free. Check out L.A. bands that are about to make it big (acts like Fitz & the Tantrums, Superhumanoids and even Local Natives once graced the residency stage) without spending a dime—well, except on maybe a beer, or a round for the folks onstage.

Head to Historic Filipinotown on Mondays for free residencies at one of the best venues on the Eastside, the Bootleg. Theater shows happen in the Gallery, and music in the Theater (in back) and the Bar (in front). Residencies take place in the bar, with high tables and stools in the back, a bar with great craft brews and a high, exposed beam roof with great acoustics.

It’s free music every Monday when up-and-coming local bands call the Echo stage home for a one-month stint, honing their stage presence and giving various opening acts a chance at the spotlight as well. If you’re worried a Monday night will fill up to capacity, you can RSVP on the Echo website for a better shot at entry. When a band is on its third or fourth Monday and killing it, this is a pretty convenient way to make sure you’re in on the action.

It has a new name, a new schedule and refocused curation, but the former Twilight Concert Series is returning to the Santa Monica Pier. The free concert series formerly brought indie favorites and up-and-comers to the Pier in the middle of the summer, as well as crowds that were maybe a bit more than the city could handle—notably a 25,000-person turnout for Khalid in 2017.

Hilltop sunset views and rising bands combine to make this Getty tradition a worthy destination for Angelenos on both sides of the 405. Tip: Avoid the traffic and the crowds and arrive early. You’ll get to visit the exhibits, watch the sunset and snag a seat at the restaurant before the dinner rush.

One of L.A.’s best free live music offerings, Jazz at LACMA has featured such legends as Wayne Shorter, John Clayton, Kenny Burrell, Les McCann, Billy Childs, Arturo Sandoval, Cannonball-Coltrane Project and Ernie Watts. Celebrating over two decades at the museum, the program continues to be one of the museum’s most recognizable (and beloved) programs. It’s a celebration of L.A.’s finest jazz musicians, and more than 42,000 visitors attend the program annually from April through November, making it a true L.A. rite of passage.

Stay out late on a school night with this series of free Monday night concerts in Bardot’s sumptuous courtyard lounge. Though the sets are short, the price is certainly right, as is the lineup curated by resident DJ and KCRW tastemaker Chris Douridas; expect a mix of local bands and touring acts. Past performers include Miguel, Eleanor Friedberger, Odesza and Father John Misty.
