X – OC Fairgrounds – Costa Mesa, CA

13 Stitches Photography

A South OC tradition, live music at the annual Orange County Fair is a crowd pleaser. This night was no different and opening act, X , was fantastic, highlighting many songs from arguably their anthem album, Los Angeles (Slash, 1980) and sticking to a set list that would satisfy their most adoring, old school fans.

Seated to my left were ladies who embodied the spirit of old school punk following, meeting this X venue with the same enthusiasm they have undoubtedly carried to countless shows over the decades. Behind me sat three thirteen-year-old boys who could not contain their excitement in getting to see headliner, Bad Religion, live. What struck me was the level of enthusiasm in both groups, the seasoned veterans were just as excited as the kids finding their Punk rock roots and as I walked around the large Pacific Amphitheater venue I saw people smiling and laughing; singing along with their favorite bands playing their favorite songs.
