yeah i think that was part of the joke
I have good memories of certain classes, some people, the radio station, and walking around campus, but I have many horror stories from UCLA. But, YMMV, really.

To actually answer the question you posed, San Francisco's local scene isn't all that impressive in my opinion. The best local bands like the Oh Sees, Girls, Fresh & Onlys, Brilliant Colors, Grass Widow all seem to be identifying more with Brooklyn right now. I don't know much about LAs music scene, but it seems like there is always something happening there every night.
However, don't choose a school based on bands.
Like everyone said, choosing a school because of the music scene that surrounds it is pretty silly, but for my two cents you sound like you obviously fit in more at Berkeley and you already know this. Coincidentally, on top of all that, you're taste in music fits in much more with San Francisco's.
Also, I'm getting really tired of the Entrance Band.
im pretty sure i will get it to both schools. i dont know much about the music scene in san francisco im sure its good tho. can anyone recommend some bands from there
Huey Lewis and the News
ya i did research. i went on a road trip too. berkeley was on break at the time so i didnt get to meet anyone but the city was really nice and the school was too. los angeles seemed like a bunch of stressed out asians. i dono maybe i went at the wrong time.
btw if anyone is interested i found a pretty cool sf band called wooden shjips
FOr what it's worth, I loved my experience at UCLA. I got to plan concerts, I met some great people, and LA has a great music scene. My classes were good, but in retrospect I would have probably enjoyed smaller classes. That's not a big concern between the two schools though, because Berkeley classes are just as big.
san francisco's music scene doesnt look as cool as LA's im not gonna lie
Pretty sure this kid is going to end up some beggar street trash punk kid on Telegraph or Hollywood Blvd. Do yourself a favor and stay out of both places.
