So I went and saw the Offspring in like 1997. I was in 5th grade. It was my first concert. I wasn’t old enough to really appreciate it, etc but my mom was cool and took me cuz she knew I wanted to go. Made me stay in the balcony though which I didn’t understand until the show started. Anyway, AFI was the band on before them and I didn’t know it yet but they would become one of my favorite bands of all time. My love of them didn’t actually come until Tony hawk 2 came out and “The boy who destroyed the world” immediately captivated me. I went and sought out the All Hallows ep and quickly got all the AFI stuff. Right as I started getting into them Sing the Sorrow came out and I only got more hooked from there. Finally saw them again at Summerfest in 2007 and my best memory is Summer Shudder in the summer rain.
