I saw Thursday last Tuesday, April 11th! Jokes aside, I caught Basement, Touché Amoré, and Thursday to end my 4 days of shows over the course of 6 days.

AFI, 2/24/17 at The Wiltern

Words cannot explain how excited I was to finally see AFI live, after 10 years of trying to buy tickets, and 10 years of failing to even make it past the "choose your ticket amount" screen.
