I was 13, made my grandma drive me to buy Decemberunderground on 6/6/06. Memorized lyrics from the book on the drive home. Joined Despair Faction, saw them for the first time on 12/1/06, cried that Christmas when my mom got me tickets to see them in St. Pete in January 2007. Still my most precious Christmas memory. I own a lot of AFI stuff, but this picture reminds me of the beginning when I fell in love with them. I’ve now seen them 14 times, follow them through FL every tour, have 5 tattoos, and 15 years later, they’re still and always my favorite band.
