Local Band Home for the Holidays: Encinitas Art Night and Leucadia Small Business Saturday

Encinitas CA— They’re back! Local indie rock band The Elements will be home for Thanksgiving break and once again perform at two hometown events: Encinitas Art Night, November 23, at the Encinitas Community Center, 1140 Oakcrest Park Drive, 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; and the Leucadia Highway 101 Main Street Association Small Business Saturday, November 30, at the Lanai, 1114 North Coast Highway 101, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. The Elements’ set list combines originals with covers of songs from bands like the Beatles, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Talking Heads, and Fitz and the Tantrums. From catchy originals like “Mr. Postman” and “The Start” to cover favorites, The Elements’ musical range is sure to please all ages.

The Elements’ last performance was in August at Encinitas Art Night, as singer/bassist Julian Boyer and drummer/guitarist Dylan Herrera went off to college in September. Keyboardist/saxophonist Eli Anderson attends San Dieguito High School Academy, in Encinitas, where he is a senior. They are looking forward to Thanksgiving break and sharing their passion for music in their hometown while supporting local artists and businesses.

Encinitas Art Night, a free community event, celebrates the city’s diverse visual art scene at Encinitas civic and local art galleries. This month only, Encinitas Art Night will include a Holiday Art Sale featuring art by local artists that is ideal for holiday gift-giving at great prices. The Encinitas Community Center will have more than 20 artists participating in one location. There will be live music and refreshments at several locations and a free bus shuttle to and from all locations. The event is 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

This year, Leucadia 101 teamed up with Encinitas 101 and Cardiff 101 for Small Business Saturday to promote and support small businesses in their communities. Shoppers will enjoy sidewalk sales, local specials, pop-up art print shops, maker’s pop-up shops, and music. Also, limited edition artwork by Artie Mattson will be gifted to shoppers who make purchases at certain businesses on Small Business Saturday. Leucadia 101 will host their annual Scavenger Hunt with over seven prizes to find and win. The Scavenger Hunt clues will be posted on Leucadia 101 Instagram. The event is 11:00 am to 3:00 pm.
