I’m not ashamed to say, I really like AFI. (Clarification: slightly ashamed.) They started off as Misfits wannabes, and are now making the natural transition into an all-goth Offspring/Depeche Mode tribute act gunning for Green Day’s mall success. In a good way!

Camera tip: just set your ISO wildly, then point directly at bright lights. Seriously, great opening lighting.

Davey Havok (“Havok is not only straight edge but also vegan”) is super-enthusiastic about screaming and running around. Good value.

They played a half-and-half split with a lot of old material, which got a great response, and tracks from their most recent, and breakthrough, album Sing the Sorrow. It’s a whole lot of fun to listen to.

Cure covers, an audience that likes to play dress-up (going to rock gigs dressed as a cycle courier? Genius!), and irresistable sing-alongs. In a very true sense, we really do “all form one dark flame.” Suspend your sense of irony wherever you can.
