If you're in L.A. this month check out the free lineup hosted by Buzz Bands. These are one of those situations that make me want to live in California. :)

Noon: The Donkeys — Sweet harmonies and laid-back indie from the San Diego quartet whose latest album “Living on the Other Side” came out in September on Dead Oceans.

1 p.m.: The Mother Hips — A heavenly marriage of the Byrds, the Band and the Beach Boys, the Bay Area quartet is working on a follow-up to 2007’s “Kiss the Grizzly Bear.”

2 p.m.: Adam Stephens — Sublime low-fi folk from half of the Bay Area duo Two Gallants. Adam will be playing his music with a quartet at SXSW.

3 p.m.: The Shys — On last year’s “You’ll Never Understand This Band the Way That I Do,” this SoCal quintet hit the mark with its high-energy take on classic psychedelia and blues.

4 p.m.: The Local Natives — Fusing three-part harmonies, tribal beats and shout-along choruses, the L.A. quintet is gearing up for the release of its debut album, “Gorilla Manor.”

5 p.m.: Red Cortez — Dynamic L.A. quartet, fresh off tour dates with Morrissey, brings rock ‘n’ roll that has the heart of a beat poet and the soul of a bluesman.

6 p.m. Harlem Shakes — Exuberant New Yorkers (OK, they’re honorary Californians on this afternoon) will unveil their triumphant pop debut “Technicolor Health” on March 24.
