AFI Playing House Party in 1994
Before they wore a lot of make-up and copped a goth/emo image, AFI were an East Bay hardcore band. Here they are rockin' the Radio House in 1994 when they toured with the Swingin' Utters. I don't know which is more amazing, how young Owen looks in the audience in his homemade "Anarchy is Cool" shirt or how young Davey Havok and the band looks.

I saw that tour in Spokane. They played in a really shitty old warehouse (the ceiling was held up with a propped up 2x4 placed a-little-too-close to the pit. Awesome fucking show though. There were 6 bands on the bill, so they didn't go on until after midnight (It was an all ages show). AFI and the Swinging Utters shared equipment and switched after they played 4 song each. Nobody had heard of AFI and they blew us away.
I thought that was in 1995 though...
It may have been 1995, I didn't have a date on the photo, I did a web search and found a mention or two of the Swingin' Utters/AFI tour of 1994, so I went with that year. Yeah, they switched off equipment here at the house show too! I was totally into Swingin' Utters and had never heard of AFI as well, and the rocked the place. Same story, different town, that's awesome.
And probably just a day before (or later).
I thought it was '95, but I could be wrong too...
