Yeah - having been born an Angeleno, I tend to think of SB, SLO, and SF as progressively distant suburbs of LA - not too far to travel for a decent party or a really long lunch.

I won't be sure until I see LA Decom and can do an apples to apples comparison with SF Decom.
Thus far, I get the impression that SF has fostered a broad community composed of dozens of groups with different interests, while LA has yielded a compact core of supertalented folks (Mutaytor, Wolfie, Pinky, Xara, etc) who are all about producing a club environment. As a result, even some of the larger SF events feel more open to contribution and more organic, whereas LA events feel very closed to contribution and very professional.
The odd thing is that LA has a huge amount of pent up creative talent, most notably all those folks involved in the production of movies, television, and theme parks - I live amid throngs of them here in Studio City. And these folks tend to be more about contributing to a big social gathering than about paying to get into a professionally produced club - I'd guess its just a matter of finding a venue and organizing an event to bring all of these guys and gals out of the woodwork.
