Everyone seemed to have had ‘pitched in on a party’ as the Observatory OC hosted a jam packed double headed night this past Friday.
Out Da House Productions in conjunction with the Observatory were able to pull off a hip hop night that brought out both ends of the rap spectrum. The Constellation Room had Tha Alkaholiks, ready to bring that west coast raw hip hop feel, while the main stage was to have everyone grooving to that g-funk sound with DJ Quik.
Tha Alkaholiks set the night off with nothing but great energy. The entire room was head bobbin’ and reciting lyrics like it was still the 90s and early 2000s.
The trio hit us off with fan favorite cuts like “Hip Hop Drunkies”, “Likwit”, “Daaam!”, “Make Room”, and my personal favorite “The Flute Song.” Towards the end of their time on stage they took the time to thank and bring up on stage one of our very own, JC of Out Da House, for bringing them out to the OC that night and for the continuous love and support.
In the main room, there was another type of west coast party going down, as everyone was partying it up to DJ Quik’s g-funk sound.
This show was slightly different than previous Quik shows. For starters, he brought out a live band this time around and to our dismay, probably the first time, he didn’t have Suga Free to accompany him. All in all it didn’t matter because the energy was outstanding from beginning to end.
Dressed in all white from head to toe, Quik had every single person with their drink up, and dancing to hit after hit. Hi-C stepped foot on stage to perform “Let Me Know” and stayed the remainder of the show as his hype man.
One of the most memorable moments was when Quik popped open a bottle of champagne and poured it into his glass. He vibed to the band for a bit, sippin’ and showing us his dance moves. He also brought a couple of lucky ladies up onto the stage to dance “Can U Werk Wit Dat.”
It’s always a good time when Quik comes to the OC. We love seeing how everyone comes together to party it up and make the place feel like it’s summertime in the 90s all over again.
Everyone got ‘Out Da House’ in a major way and as always we hope you all enjoyed it and we’ll see you at the next show!
