So we played the KROQ show last night, nothing caught on fire and no one was gravely injured, except for Hunter's knee, it caught on fire.  
We had fun, even though the sets were all short, Warped Tour-style.  We played "Love is a Many Splendored Thing", which is an extremely old AFI song we haven't played for years and years.
Then it was off to see the Cure's secret show at the Troubadour.  Then I finished it all off with a bowl of Lucky Charms.
All in all, a top-notch night.

That sucks for Hunter...but there's nothing like a good bowl of Lucky Charms to end a good day.

NightShade said...

From where I sat - in cold, snowy Denver - it was indeed a top-notch night. Loved watching you guys, and I'm glad you had fun!

Jacks1234 said...

Ahhh! I wish I could have watched. From what I hear it was amazing! And the secret Cure show. I'm so jealous!

~ Cci ~ said...

Lovely day huh?
..im jealous.. >.>

Haylee Sunshine said...

Don't the marshmallows in Lucky Charms have gelatin in them? That's not very vegetarian, Jade.

I'm glad you had a nice night. =)

~*Miss Murder*~ said...

I'm glad to see you guys playing shows again. :) You did awesome and I can't wait for the new album. Is Hunter alright? :D
I like the lucky charms marshmallows ^_^

XOXO

impure0purest said...

NERRRGGGGGGG!
So I didn't get to see it, but I did get to /hear/ some of it on KROQ's website.. and I've already watched all the videos on youtube that seemed to be worth my while.

You guys did totally great!
YAY AFI!!!

kirstie said...

Haha. Sounds fun. Come to Houston some time, ne?

And Reese's Puffs are way better than Lucky Charms...come on, Jade.

<3

Pablo said...

Thank you so fucking much for Love is a Many Splendored Thing! 11 years without playing it!

Hope to see this kind of songs in future AFI shows!

I so wish I wasn't on the other side of the world right now! Come to Australia... Soon! Pretty please xx

So wish I could've seen you guys play. And The Cure too! Damn living in Australia.

Damn, I wish I could have gone to see Hunters fire knee =/

MJ said...

I watched you guys via webcast. You were absolutely brilliant. And you had a very nice shirt on. I want a shirt like that.

Kørrlej said...

I'm sad I missed the revival of that badical tune.

Melyssa said...

It was a top-notch night for all of us, as well. <3 You guys were absolutely fantastic. That's all that needs to be said. I'm so proud of all of you.

AlyssaJasselMcAvoy said...

you guys were amazing<3

glad to see you boys back on stage!

what's up with "we'll see you bak in SUMMMER"
?!?!?! you guys sure know how to drive your fans crazyy.
we love you.
Keep rocking.

Karlye said...

I cannot describe the feeling of seeing you guys live again, even if it was through a computer screen. You guys did such a phenominal job. Especially when you played "Love is a Many Splendored Thing", I freaked out. You all looked pretty snazy too.

Be sure to tell Hunter to make sure he wears flame-resistant knee-pads at the next show, in fact maybe you should all wear them next time, it'd be usefull for your knees.

Hopefully I'll see you all in the summer. <3<3

Taylor said...

i wish i could have been there.
i bet it was amazing.
<3 Taylor

ThisSideUp said...

Wow, not even Hunter said anything about his knee catching fire. Glad you told us Jade.

Nothing like nasty children's cereal to finish off a night like that.

Jason said...

I hope you took out the marshmallows! I REALLY hope that playing that song wasn't a one-time thing!

helen099 said...

congratulations, jade! how did it feel to get back out in front of the crowd?

ps, the creator of lucky charms should be given a nobel prize.

YAAAAA FIRST COMMENT!!! I HOPE??

Zoé Aimee said...

It was so amazing Jade, fantastic to see you guys again!
Thank you so much for playing LIAMST, it was amazing!

xrainbowbloodx said...

Thats fantastic. I haven't seen The Cure in a while and sadly I have yet to hear your Freakshow remix D: I will though, soon. I remember going to a small show when Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me came out...after the show someones hair caught on fire, MJ style. Well, much love and I hope you're joking about Hunter's knee. If not I hope it heals.

You guys also did great at the KROQ Xmas<3

camilla said...

It's great to know you still play some of the old tunes. Can't wait to listen to your next album!

munin_and_hugin said...

Glad you had a good night :)

The Pomegranate Entry said...

Glad to hear you're back in the world

SANE said...

QUICK HUNTER! STOP, DROP AND ROLL!!!

Anonymous said...

I can't believe you played Love is a many splendored thing! WOW! It's good to see that you're still aware of you roots in that way. You should play 1-3 Black Sails songs on you next tour, first album wiht Jade, my favorite AFI record right after Sing the sorrow!

Davey said...

Very nice! I'm glad you had a good night. Are we talking marshmallow-less lucky charms?

_Anja_ said...

That sounds awesome. :]
Can't wait for the new album.
Have a happy holidays, Jade.

XO

KD [X] said...

Sounds like a pretty awesome night.

Angharad said...

Man I wish I had been there! Unfortunatly there is quite some distance between where I live and there. And yeah, the lucky charms would have just made the night perfect. It's a shame I only know of one place that sells them in the UK. :-(

C'est Moi. said...

Woah, did you say Lucky Charms?! That WAS a phenomenal night!

LIAMST... awesome song. Well, awesomely brutal.

Anisha said...

i wish i couldve seen you guys but im sadly on the wrong side of the country :(

Jessus said...

I heard about Love Is.
Goddamnit. I wish I was there, that would have been wonderful to hear, so wonderful.

Jo Emmaljunga said...

How exciting...especially that Lucky Charms part :)

I'm now having milk chocolate with nut toffee filling for breakfast.

lezah said...

Aw, poor Hunter.

Your set was fabulous! I watched you guys on the webcast. In low bandwidth. It's nice to see you on stage again. You sounded nice on Silver and Cold too!

I miss eating Lucky Charms.

alayna said...

Really happy for all of you who got to see/take part in this!
& I'm glad to see some new stuff happening with AFI, of course. It really feels longer that it actually has been, but you know, new music-related things are kinda, really cool. Yeah.

Have a great day (to everyone on here really - great days are awesome!)!

Mina said...

..oh maaan.. you're so lucky you saw the cure.. I'll ask Santa to bring Robert to Moscow this year.. oh yeah and ofc AFI too..or BA at least.. you can't even imagine how much ppl here want to see you guys..

<3<3
>(//)<

Phill said...

Oh no! Firey knees suck! I'm eating a bowl of luckies right now! Lucky Charms FTW IMO

Burning Wings said...

I love you guys so much! uhmm maybe you should do Warped next year since you guys said the Album may come out around then? Excited for the new MOZ album?

rEDcookiemontank said...

marshmallows arent vegetarian...

anyways, you guys were AWESOME! let me put it this way...you say no injuries? i say nay. so even though acoustic was the most mellow pit i ever saw in my life, TWO SECONDS into the first song i got a mosh punch to the back of my head, bit my lip, popped out my lip ring and lost it to the pit gods. my lip is a balloon and i have an earring keeping the hole open. AND I DONT CARE CUZ YOU WERE AWESOME! THE PINACLE OF AWESOMENESS!! (and the cure was sweet night 2).

Sounds like the Perfect Day!
Well, maybe if there was a massage thrown in there~

dead said...

dont lucky charms have gelatin?

Anonymous said...

must be pretty exhausting, especially using up all that energy for a bowl of good ol' lucky charms.

Susan said...

AFI and The Cure in one night. sweetness. you all need to bring some of that love to the east coast!

True Ninjas never die said...

I love old AFI song x)

Lennat said...

You make me yearn for cereal!

Anna said...

Glad you're throwing old stuff into the mix. Yay fun.

Lucky Charms are evillll!

Anonymous said...

AFI is back! hell yeah

A.M.Zart said...

What? Man I always miss the shows when you guys do old material... And when I have been, the radio crowd is totally lost... Ugh. Looking forward to catching you guys on the road again.

Melodia Sadpain said...

It was just totally awesome. I didn't know I could watch it on webcast until 30 min before you guys hit the stage. I went nuts. And it was great to see you in concert and being actually up to date, since every live vid I've been watching are at least 1 year old. (At the time when I discovered AFI, it was already 6 months since you gave your last show before vanishing.)

Oh, and I must say that I love the new, fresh sound you guys are giving to old songs.

<333

Kayleigh Puget said...

I love you Jade.
I just love you.
Your blog never fails to make me laugh.

So can you go and look at my blog, to see if I can make YOU laugh?
Go on!
It'll be like a game :D

Can Kayleigh make Jade laugh?

Cherol said...

LIAMST was fantastic, I thought my head was going to explode when you guys played that. Not expected in a million years. Mini Trucks Suck next time?

I'm jealous that you go to see the Cure, but glad that you had such a great night.

sugarandice said...

Sounds incredible. Glad you all had fun! And I finished my night off with a bowl of cereal too =]

The caustics won't caustic for me said...

Ah, you lucky bastard! The last time I saw The Cure was in the summer, and the woman that was next to me's shirt caught on fire. Anywho, I will be making an appearance at a Christmas Party, though I would rather much be home in bed, fine time to get sick when your busy right? <3s

chaoskitten said...

I MISSED IT!!!! me and my sister planned to watch the webcast coz we live in Ireland and uh, its kinda hard to get to the gig for us! lol!
because of the ten hour time difference we had to get up at 5.30am in order to see your 7.20pm performance... but the times changed and we missed it! grr! we were forced to sit through Stone Temple Pilots! *shudders at Scott the singer*
i was SOOO mad! not at you guys, but at KROQ! any chance of a link to watch the performance *pleading* i've never seen you guys live! i have I Heard a Voice, but although i LOVE it, i wanted to see a LIVE show....
i'm still sad :( can't wait for the album though :)
lots of love for you and the guys <3 <3 ....even for DXH's new beard... :)

eiefai said...

I'm sure Hunter took it all in his stride making it look like some new fresh style.

Ashleigh said...

That you all had fun is definitely the main thing. And LIAMST is definitely old. Ancient, more like.

Boo™♥ said...

I wish I could've seen ya'll at Kroq!!! Glad to hear that the show was awesome, not that I'm surprised ^.~

I'm sure that The Cure show was awesome as well!!

Lucky Charms are awesome BTW. <3

araceli said...

I wish I could have been there!!
you guys HAVE TO! come to Vancouver BC when you go on tour.
You just HAVE to.
Poor Hunter I hope he gets better.

D'anna said...

Aw, c'mon, Jade. You should've been all Jimi Hendrix like, lighting guitars on fire. That would have been boss.

And Honey Bunches of Oats is obviously better than Lucky Charms. I'm not a breakfast (or breakfast-for-aftershow-snack) type person, though, so who am I to judge?

<3

Cyanidendsugar said...

and it's now i really wish i had kroq and lucky charms..

OneCoolNerd said...

Top notch nights are good.

helen099 said...

can't a hard-working man (jade) treat himself to a bowl of lucky charms without being criticized?

we're "lucky" he shares these tid-bits with us in the first place.

♥♥

Charlotte said...

Lucky Charms have gelatin D:

Also, it was very kind of you to think about the restivus. :)

Silly Girls Win said...

I WISH I HAD SOME LUCKY CHARMS, MAN.

I wasn't there, but I REALLY wanted to go. It sucks living in West Virginia. But I'll be coming to L.A. for school! MAYBE I'LL SEE YOU.

I watched it online, it sounded like Davey was still sick. Your amps were a little screwy too, huh? That's what it sounded like to me, at least. Oh well. You guys still did really good! (You sang good in Silver and Cold, one of my favess. I like Girl's Not Grey, too. That song got me liking you guys. Right now, Kiss and Control, Miseria Cantare, This Celluloid Dream, and The Interview are my favorites. It depends on my mood.)

Long comment. Are you still answering those questions? It's okay if you're not. Just wondering.

I saw the videos on youtube. Yay for old AFI!

Rushton79 said...

Hey sexy man. I want to fallow your blog and the option is not up. What is up with that?

Would you put that back up? BTW

You are the most interesting person on the planet. Hunter comes in second. I can see how you two are friends. I always like reading your blogs and his.

You are also the best looking man in the world. I love your hair and face.

Has anyone ever told you; that you have angel eyes; because you do.

God bless

btw;

I would not piss Munch off anymore. I pissed my cat off and she ran away.

Lucky Charms are epic win.

AHHHHHH, I MISSED it!! Youtube, here I come!

I hope Hunter's knee feels better. XD

You missed a great NIN show! A keyboard got tossed into the crowd. CAN YOU GUYS BEAT THAT?!? HUH?!?! And no, kicking through a wall will not beat it. Besides, you've done that already.

Cameron Blok-Andersen said...

So I've been following your Bloggy-Blog for months now. Finally, I have a gmail account, and finally yes I am posting. I agree that the new Cradle does sound like Cruelty from time to time. I still love Bitter Suites...
All is well here in Denver, CO and I hope that all is well with you and the family. Tell the boys "Hi and hugs!" from me.

All the best,

Cameron

crazyskanker said...

just for love is a many splendored thing, U got an old fan back :D Sounding great guys. Any chance the new album will have more screaming than singing?
