Sometimes going through old files, you come across some things that you previously overlooked but now take on a different meaning. We present to you an in store by Tree Haus Club that took place within the first year in Santa Ana. The information escapes me, so you will have to help me on that but we do see some very familiar faces. Photographer is unknown as well. Sorry for the cloudy recollection, this is a work in progress of sorts. Enjoy.
