[March 7th, 2023 – San Diego, CA] The Observatory in San Diego, CA, sits atop a hill in the North Park neighborhood. Originally built in 1929 as a theater, the venue has undergone several renovations over the years and has played host to a variety of acts, from big-name bands to up-and-coming indie artists. Despite these changes, the building has maintained its vintage charm and now boasts a modern PA system that can rock you to your core. The staff is both professional and accommodating, making it an enjoyable experience for all fans.
As the crowd filled in, Australian alt-rock band Flying Machine took to the stage, igniting the energy in the room from the first note. The band’s high-octane performance quickly had the crowd moshing, and their hard-hitting brand of rock delighted existing fans while winning over new ones. The band even played the track ‘Angels’ by request for a particular fan in the crowd, acknowledging them after the song’s completion. After their set, the band members greeted and interacted with fans, cementing their newfound fandom.
Brooklyn-based indie rock band Yot Club followed with a sound all their own. Their blend of solid guitar rock and ’80s mod melodies had the crowd hooked from the start. Performing tracks from their recent album, including the title track “Off the Grid” and “Down Bad,” as well as others, they concluded their set a track off their 2019 EP Bleach Beach titled “Japan.” The man of the band Ryan Kaiser spent time at the merch stand, graciously taking pictures, giving autographs, and chatting with each fan personally the enjoyment of the interaction clearly felt by both parties.
After a brief intermission, the headliners, The Skegss, took the stage to a sold-out crowd. The die-hard indie fan base rocked the energy of the night. The audience sang along to favorites like “New York California” and “Road Trip,” while slam-dancing and crowd-surfing along to the music. During the set they invited a random fan to perform as a guest guitarist to wrap up a song, the guest guitarist Carter rocked with authority before stage jumping back to his place in the crowd. The Skegss’ hard-rocking, good-time anthems punctuated what was a memorable night for all in attendance. Even if you’re new to these bands, you’ll leave the show as a fan.
The Skegss concluded the evening with an encore that left the crowd satisfied and put a bow on a fantastic night of high-energy rock. From the opening act to the headliners, there wasn’t a single letdown.
