Black Umbrella

When I was 16 I went to Warped Tour in 2001 with my friend just to see AFI. We were standing by the sound booth while watching The Vandals play and my friend turns to me and whispers “is that Davey?” Confused, I look around thinking I don’t know anyone named Davey until I look to my right and standing next to us was Davey Havok in black, holding a black umbrella. We talked to him for a bit about us being in a band and he signed my ticket (which I still have.) It was nice to know that someone you look up to could be so friendly and down to earth. It is something I’ll never forget.
