Get outside and bike or skate over to Leucadia Roadside Park! Saturday 6/29 is Summer Fun’s big fiesta day. Check out the full schedule of music and films starting at noon (clicky). We’ve added a side stage at Seaweed and Gravel, and to close things out there’s a modern music concert at the Encinitas Library happening on Sunday (clicky). And don’t forget the Beach Clean up with Eco-Rooted (clicky)!
Leucadia 101 Main Street Association and Ruthless Hippies would like to thank Spy Optic, Surfy Surfy, Firestone Walker and ALL of our wonderful donors and sponsors who made this thing happen!!!
Some of the music on Friday will actually be in front of Coastal Animal Hospital, which was once the south wing of Lou’s. Glad to see they still have the spirit
Their bad ass punk rock hipster bearded lizard can’t wait to party with you all.
Wait a minute, this sign says 4 PM. The other one said 5 PM.
Well, technically, Harry Holiday’s artshow starts at Ducky Waddle’s at 3 PM and will feature vinyl mixology from Edify. You want him to play a request? Go over to Lou’s, buy it and let it spin…
We were really thrilled with Harry’s poster art this year and we think it would look great up on your wall. There will be limited prints of this ink and watercolor available at the Duck!!!
We are so insanely pumped about the film portion of Summer Fun on the 101 this year! Saturday 6/29 starting at 7:15pm at Roadside park we have an audio/visual spectacular by Glen and the Boys and at 8pm we will have surf movies from none other than Haley Gordon and Korduroy.tv!!!
Haley Gordon is an extremely talented young Encinitas photographer/filmaker/local who puts the spotlight on women surfers. We are super stoked to be featuring these fine female shredders. Take a sneak peak:
Korduroy.tv burst onto the surf world scene a few years back when Cyrus Sutton released Stoked & Broke. His humble website really took off and has since become a successful business in spreading digital aloha around the world with it’s web films.
Cy and Korduroy are known for putting GoPro camera’s to good use deep in the barrel…
Buy some raffle tickets at Saturday’s event and maybe you’ll be going home with your own GoPro camera to put to use however you like! Proceeds from the raffle go to support local music education programs at Paul Ecke Central.
The Blue Moonies are cosmic Leucadia beings from another dimension. Their funkship explores familiar realms in fresh ways: funk, R& B, Soul, Reggae, Surf Rock, Metal and more. They’ve got something for everyone, brilliant originals, classic covers, and talent in heaps.
Here’s the Blue Moonies playing an original, “Santa Marie” at Leucadia Artwalk
Singer/Guitarist of the Blue Moonies, Tom Mitchell, actually runs a music school called Chops Woodshed Academy (Solana Beach) which took judges choice at the Summer Fun on the 101 Battle of the Bands. Catch those kids 4 PM in front of Lou’s Records Friday 6/28. And catch the Blue Moonies closing out that same evening at Ducky Waddle’s 9 PM.
Summer Fun, meet your Otis Day and the Knights. These cats keep the Party shouting like no other. See ya at the Duck. Quack.
Thanks to Socalmusic.tv again for the footage!
The Rootz, the Rootz, the Rootz is on fire!
Shoreline Rootz is nine piece roots reggae band based out of Encinitas. They formed a few years back when presented with an opportunity to play a Bob Marley tribute at the Belly Up. Combining Ryan Thorpe’s soulful raspy vocals with a tight crew of insanely talented instrumentalists, the Rootz exploded onto the scene with their own original music shortly after the Marley tribute.
These guys and girls play all the biggest venues around SD and have shared stages with dozens of reggae legends at some of the biggest reggae festivals in the US. But nothing gets Shoreline Rootz fired up quite like playing a show for the home town crowd. Catch the fire from Shoreline Rootz at Leucadia Roadside Park this Saturday at 4 PM.

Mrs. Magician is Jacob Turnbloom, Tommy Garcia and Cory Stier. They are three nice young gentlemen from San Diego who make epic fuzzy pop songs. These tunes will burrow in your brain with their surfy hooks until you’re singing their sinister choruses in your sleep. Embrace it…
Their debut album ‘Strange Heaven’ was produced by San Diego rock legend, Jon ‘Swami’ Reis (Rocket From the Crypt, Hot Snakes, Drive like Jehu, The Night Marchers) and it spins around on top of our record player for weeks at a time.
We are so unbelievably stoked to have these guys playing one of their only two San Diego shows this summer in Leucadia at Summer Fun on the 101: Saturday 6/29 at 6 PM (catch them also @ Soda Bar July 30th). They are loud, tight and full of energy on stage.
Mrs. Magician had a new song debut recently on RollingStone.com (click for FREE Mp3) and they will be recording a new album this fall. These guys are blowin’ up. Believe us, you will be summer bummed if you miss Mrs. Magician playing at Roadside Park.
