March 2nd Tyga was in San Diego rapping at the Observatory in North Park. His performance was outstanding, featuring old hits and new songs, great visual effects, and even a surprise appearance by Kylie Jenner. His headliners were a rap group from Atlanta that came out into the crowd and whom I got to meet and take a picture with. The Observatory is a unique venue because if you get to the show about an hour or so before the doors open, you can stand at the front of the crowd right next to the stage. That was another reason Tyga’s concert was so spectacular. I was at the front for most of the time, but when I was at the back of the crowd I noticed Kylie Jenner and a friend standing above everyone at the loft with seats watching Tyga. When people started noticing her and pointing her out she went away, but reappeared during Tyga’s song “Stimulated,” which also featured the music video playing on the giant screen behind the stage. Tyga was phenomenal live. He was full of energy, performed songs everyone knew and the oldies I was hoping for, and sounded just like he does on his tracks. Another shout out I’d like to make is to Access Music on Garnet Avenue in Pacific Beach, for selling me tickets to this concert 30 minutes before it began! The decision to go was sort of a spontaneous one, and this place had twenty tickets they were still selling. I was able to go there, pick up three tickets, and get to the concert about half an hour before Tyga came on. I’m so glad I found out about this business, because a few weeks later I bought tickets last minute from them again for Waka Flocka Flame. If you’re ever in need of some tickets on the fly, try Access Music!
