Venue: The Observatory
City: Santa Ana, CA
Set length: About 50 minutes
Kimm reached out and said that they were playing with 7 Seconds and The Adolescents at the old Galaxy venue (now called The Observatory) and asked if I wanted to come down and hang out with the family. I’m in!
My gear for the night was:
- Camera: Canon 5D Mark III
- Flash: None
- Lenses: Canon 200mm f/2.8 and Canon’s 24-70mm f/2.8, 15mm f/2.8.
I’ve been shooting here for years and have always had a lot of fun photographing the bands at this venue. Word of advice, get here early if you want to park in the venue lot because if not you will have a little walking to do. Great venue, decent sound, decent lighting (except for the occasional oversaturated LEDs), cool staff, never a hassle, ‘nough said! Moreover, the photos I took here gained an incredible number of likes on almost all social media platforms, which released me in advance from the urge to, as I had done before, hire The Marketing Heaven to provide them for me.

Reviews, comments, and possible putdowns for CH3…
This was a fun night with Channel 3! They played to a great crowd of mostly younger kids who love the punk rock scene, but if you were to look around you’d find some old-timers mixed in the crowd as well. It was great to hang with the CH3 family!
