AFI has been my favorite musical influence since 2001. Ironically I was born the year the band was created. During a brief intermission I had the privilege to meet Jade at Tiger Army’s Dark Paradise EP show. The moment was so surreal as I couldn’t believe I was talking to pretty much a child hood hero. Jade could tell I was in awe but he was very friendly and really just a regular person with me which made me joyful and reminded me why AFI maintain such a true loyal following. Certainly one of the happiest memories of my 30 years on earth thus far.
