Orange County-based band the Offspring’s fourth album, “Ixnay on the Hombre,” was released on Feb. 4, 1997, and to commemorate the 20th anniversary, the quartet decided to throw a big ‘ol Halloween party at the Observatory in Santa Ana.

The sold-out crowd turned up for a rowdy evening and even in the pouring rain on Monday night, a few fans and the opening act, Orange County’s own Well Hung Heart, dressed up in full Halloween garb for the first of three shows.
