Why did I choose Leucadia? It is a weird town. Residents here live by the ethos, “Keep Leucadia Funky.” It has a small town feel and is home to some of the best surf spots, amongst other things. Any night of the week you can find live entertainment or play at an open mic. After a few weeks into the new year a friend showed me a publication of the San Diego Troubadour. This was a point in the right direction and as a newbie to the music scene in southern California, this was a great resource to know of. These are the open mic that have introduced me to the California music scene so far.
