Where do I even start?!? I’ve been going to AFI shows since nearly the beginning. It’s hard to describe to people what those early shows were like. A ragtag group of teenagers with such a passion for the music they made with a work ethic that remains to this day. Begging people to come up to the stage in hopes of hooking them in with their unique sound. I’ve been to probably at least a 100 shows over the years and it never gets old. Since early on Dave and Adam treated me like family, always happy to see me and catch up before the shows. The hilarious antics of Smith, always making me laugh. I’m forever grateful for the personal and professional inspiration, inspiring me to push the boundaries of myself as an artist and a person. So many memories, so many great people I’ve met at the shows over the years, here’s to the next 30!
