Here's a few pictures from our shows Down Undah. Jim from Jimmy Eat World took the bottom 3 on his iPhone. If you've ever tried to take a picture on an iPhone you'll know it's quite an achievement capturing the guitar-throwing one.

Those are some pretty bad ass pictures.

Shy Girls Win said...

Nice show! I wish I was there, but of course I wasn't... I need to get to an AFI show sometime soon... Maybe you'll guys will be there when I go to Florida in April 2010 from the 18the to the 25th? It's a posibility...

I hope you decide not to sell those guitars because you don't want to lose the memories of them...

SingToMeTheirElegy said...

Wow the first picture is crazy!
And how am I the first comment? Must be magic lol

Ayda said...

Davey looks so graceful :D haha
And you look great like always! These pictures are freaking awesome

Haras said...

That first picture is sooo good.

Coldest Day In July said...

In that first picture it appears that Davey and Hunter are auditioning for High School Musical 4. You look great, however, you could pass for an inverted Rick Allen in guitarist form. <33

Crimson Butterfly said...

those are some greatpics i do love the fact that in one of them davey looks like a ballarina and you look like you were trying to be a bird(don't ask my mind isn't working right now)but i do like the pics

Gem Shiny said...

Now that is some straight up magic! lol I have a hard time getting a clear pic of something still.Sweet pics, thanx for posting!!!

Andri said...

Now that's a lot of people.

Dont throw your guitars man, take good care of em.

Cat said...

Everyone's leaping about in the first photo. It makes me happy.

Are you ever afraid you won't catch your guitar?

Kaitlyn said...

Good pics.
The first one made me laugh... For some reason :)

and the second one with the guitar throwing...all i could imagine is that guitar not getting caught and shattering on the stage floor...
But everythings good I guess? Lol

mayumi said...

OH! Excellent shot!
Thank you Jim<3

OMG you guys look great. When are you coming to SoCal?? I can't wait to see you again. Hey, I sure hope that guy caught your guitar!!

FallSouthWinter said...

For some reason, the first picture absolutely astounds me. Did you guys sneak in a ballet class or two? Awesome.

Anonymous said...

have you ever just got REALLY REALLY MAD at one of ur guitars and wanted to just smash it to bits? my friend wanted to do that to mine becuz im left handed and hes not and he couldnt play it luckly we were at school but those are some rad pictures

Fbowa said...

Haha. I love them all. :]

UndeadInk said...

oh goodness jade. The guitar throw scares me. What if it fell?!
I envy thee. Your in nice sunny australia and here I am in snowy ohio. pthhh.

Vegan Tentacle said...

hey, great pics, interesting perspective!!! can't wait until april, show in hamburg germany ;))

lezah said...

Was this Brisbane? Doesn't look like Sydney. That guy looks like he's going "OH SHIT JADE'S THROWING HIS GUITAR. MUST CATCH IT!" Haha. Killer shot!

You were amazing both times I saw you in Sydney, thank you so much. How on earth do you jump around/hop around/bounce around on stage and still play the guitar perfectly?! Insane talent. I swear your fingers are as long (if not longer) than my palm. You sounded great singing backing vocals and during Silver and Cold/The Interview too!

Thank you so much for playing. We really hope to have you guys back again for a headlining tour for Crash Love! Please? It gives us DFers an opportunity to meet up. :) And don't forget Singapore! There are fans there who would love to see AFI live; I just got lucky that I'm living in Australia at the moment (even if it means skipping 3 days of school and driving 4 hours down to Sydney). I'm kinda bummed that I didn't get to meet any of you to say hi/thanks for the amazing show. There's always next time! Unless you don't want me to say hi...

Also, there was meant to be a DF line at the Sydney sideshow but in the end there wasn't one. Weird.. but no matter, I still got a nice spot at the front and that was a damn good crowd.

I had the best time ever, especially with the DFers. I miss you all so much, do come back very soon! I caught your pick :D

ThisSideUp said...

Wow. Those pictures are amazing! You guys put on incredible shows! I wish I could have been there.

broaster said...

awesome! my roommate was just talking about australiaaaaa. you should look for some chicken chips, i heard they make good fake sandwiches.

Anonymous said...

Ohhhhhhh your show at the Tabernacle was so great. <3

Jacks said...

I need to know the outcome of this guitar-toss. Is he gunna catch it? It's rather gripping!

Anonymous said...

U guys were awesome at both Sydney shows. Just awesome.

leongyiting said...

WOAH. Those are frickin' sweet shots! Come to Singapore please. A bunch of Df-ers and I have been asking since 2006 and before:/ Don't deprive us of your awesomeness!

Haha okay, cutting the mushiness. It's been a long time since I'd last commented on your blog haha. I must say again, KICKASS (quite literally) PHOTOS!

Nyx said...

Oh, God. They are great! I;m always charged with good energy when I look at the way you all move ;)

11am_street said...

and he caught it? Impressive photos, that and of course that looks like quite the crowd you've amassed there. Awesome!! Enjoy Aus, I sure wish I was there!! :)

Noise Electric said...

Nice shots, brotha! Thanx for posting. Give Jim my compliments on his timing. Heh.

What's with the skinny jeans though?

hey..i was wondering.. i saw your tour dates.. and you have concerts in europe.. When are you guys coming to romania..haha! in first of may i'm going to england and i wanted a miracle that i would find a concert with you guys. but sadly i didn't cause.. yep you are playing in april or something like that i think! in london..:( and i really do wanna se you!.. well hehe! kind of nervous writing..! i don't really know what to say..! Your music is great.. i read about afi.. aan entire night. and you are really great.. cause you understand life or music or everything.. pure nature of a human kind.. that's great! i like that stuff! oohh well i hope i didn't mess up cause i can't really write what i think it's kind of difficult cause my mind it;s a mess hahaha! ooh well ! Cheers guys and i hope one day i could see you guys...! Andreea

Kayleigh 'Be' Puget said...

JADEYYY!!! That makes me so fucking excited for April!! Nice to see you guys are still jumping that high. I've missed reading your blog; I should become a regular again ;D

LynellMarie said...

Look at all those people... (I would be so nervous. Probably not even on the stage.)

Gilded said...

This is random, but seeing the backside of your cabs and that separate mic'd cab (for monitors?) it made me realize. Your rig is kind of a mystery lol. I think it'd be cool if you mapped out your effects, amps, guitars, and such for all us players (similar to how guitarworld mag does it every issue like http://www.guitarfxdepot.com/wp-content/uploads/pete_loeffler.jpg ) But you don't have to draw it lol.

Anyways, rambling. I've been curious for a looooong time...especially with your old STS rig...that was always very curious to me.

Peace.

Anna Ladzinski said...

The top one looks awesome, they way you're all mid-jump.
And, I saw an awesome guitar throwing picture the other day... I can't remember where, but it looked really cool.

helen099 said...

yay for jim! that was nice of him. i love J.E.W.

you guys are dressing better. tell davey no more gold pants! ☺

come home soon!
♥♥

helen099 said...

oh, ps, i just got a mental image of jim adkins jumping and twirling onstage like you guys do, and that didn't work at all!

♥♥

Mandy said...

Whoa. Awesome pictures! I really like the first one where you guys were nearly flying :]
Jade, you've got a really nice aim.

Emme said...

I cannot get over at the mass of people you guys performed in front off over there.

I AM UTTERLY SPEECHLESS - WOW!!!

Haaannnnah said...

Woo! :D

damn there were a TON of people there

rock is the best music said...

looks really cool. I don't have an ipone but I do know that capturing a good pic a cell is hard.

I hope AFI can come to SOUTH DAKOTA
one day

Anonymous said...

Hahahahahah! The top one is the best picture ever! I'm coming to see you today at ADELAIDE SOUNDWAVE YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAH! I just wanna say. I've been with you since black sails, and this is the first time I've seen you live AND I'M ONLY SEVENTEEN SO THIS IS MY LIFELONG DREAM EVER COMING TRUE. Are you going to be doing signing? Because you should, like REALLY should. Love you, very very much, Jadey :) xx

Kevin Runyon said...

Have they ever not caught the guitar, I swear at the seattle show last month you threw it and no one caught it hahaha. You guys are amazing, Favorite band of all time,Jade your a genius. I really hope to see you and davey in Seattle for Bright Black Heaven. Much Undying Love

~Kevin~

moozicrox said...

Bahahaha, I so wanted to go to that concert. But I couldn't...
Love the guitar throwing pic. ;)

TJmusic24 said...

those are some cool pics...cant wait to see you guys again next month in florida!...got a new cd for you!

Limbo McLaurin said...

The first one looks like a scene from a beautiful ballet, just saying.
Have fun down under! Play with a Koala and put a picture up please!

Christy Crawley said...

Ah, AFI festival shows during the day confuse my brain so much. XD
I prefer them at night. Cause everything is more intense at night.

....Okay. That was NOT meant to be suggestive. But because it is, I'm keeping it.

So guess what's going on right now on facebook? Rewriting "TiK ToK" by Ke$ha. JADE style.

We've only got a few lines thus far, but they're rather amusing to us....

"Wake up in the mornin' feelin like Jade Puget, got a Gibson Les Paul guitar, but Blaqk don't use it!

Before I leave, gotta swoop my bangs all the way back, cuz when I leave for a show, Munch ain't gettin snacks."

Yuuuup. You read that right. XD

Ale said...

Buenas fotos Jade,ya quiero verlos por aqui en México, se les extraña mucho. Felicidades por el exito que han tenido.

Sarah said...

lovely! I saw you guys in Melbourne. It was a great show and my first time seeing you guys. I will definitely be back for more next time you guys stop by. These photos make me want to see you guys again, now.

AFI. Afi means ALWAYS FUCKING INCREDIBLE. or A Fat Iguana, take your pick. Im proud of you guys as I have been for quite a long time. Was listening to Clove Smoke Catharsis and thinking about how you guys, and even the former members, have influenced others how Joy Division and Samhain influenced you. I hope to someday do the same for someone else, because THAT is the beauty in music. Daughter Of Danzig, Natasha Bloodshed. If you read this, look at your life and theirs in the band. You achieved the dreams you worked hard for, you mastered life. The meaning of life is to live it for yourself and others, and as long as you're happy, nothing else matters. Good job, A.F.I. :)

"what the... hell?" Jade then stared inrediculously at his laptop. Some weirdo put fanfiction as a comment! Who would do such a thing. (DRAMATIC IRONY.) He then looked to Munch, who started floating in the air as bubbles appeared. "What the..."

OhGothMe said...

Wow, looks awesome! Still sad that you didn't do at least one concert in New Zealand :(, I hope you do next tour. Enjoy the rest of your down under tour and safe travels!

Samantha said...

Awww you guys look amazing! I couldn't be there so thank you heaps for posting the lovely pictures =) much appreciated!
Dammit! I even had tickets!!
I was booked into work at the last kick.... now I know of a few other things I'd like to kick!
I didn't know the shutter speed on an iPhone was fast enough to deal with a flying guitar... Pushing boundaries huh? =P
man I miss you guys! I wish I could've been there! Was like salt in the wound when every train and a mob of people are (obviousely) going in the opposite direction to you =( major bummer!
Would love to here more about how everything went with the OZ shows... Hope you're doing ok...
Say hi to th guys for me. =)
always nothing but the best,
-Samantha xoxo

Daniela said...

wow. A lot of people. I love that photos.

When you'll come in Romania[if you ever do this]?

Olivia Grayce said...

OH MY GOD. I saw you guys at soundwave today. It was INCREDIBLE. I knew every word to every song, please be proud :) :) :) I was so sad when you left the stage though! I bought 2 of your t-shirts though :D And just thought I'd let you know, I'd go this heatstroke ANY DAY to see you guys perform! Thats right. Headache and nausea, because I love you :). You were BRILLIANT. Love xoxoxo

Anonymous said...

You poor thing, you looked absoulutely exhausted at Soundwave in Adelaide, much sincere thanks for playing for us in such heat. The stage charisma of the 4 of you sent prickles down my back, was the first live AFI set I could get to. Hope you survive the rest of Soundwave and hope they have hoses around.
Much respect and love
Emily <3

Cassii Mitchell said...

I think it's more of an achievment that you CAUGHT the guitar. I don't know anybody who has ever caught a guitar, and you, sadly, don't count seeing as I have never met you in my life. Something I'm trying very hard to change, if that doesn't sound too stalkerish.
Very interested to find out why Jim from Jimmy Eat World was taking pictures of you guys with his iPhone. That's even more stalkerish than I am. And I'm a stalker. XD.

Miss Gwen said...

Those are AMAZING lol. I love the first one :)

Shaina said...

wow looks like an amazing show. damn thats alot of people. you guys looks great as always =)

.THE DUCK. {DF} said...

The pictures are EPIC! You guys are so amazing! I want to see you live again, but I'm too young to drive. Poo :( Will you consider coming to Tulsa once more for us AFI fans trapped in this hillbilly hell-hole? It would mean so much. Thanks, we love you! <3

Ayla said...

"Hmm, maybe instead of jumping off the drum riser you could just step carefully down off of it but make a crazy I'm-going-off-really-hard face while you're doing it so people think you're doing some insane stage move."

Pseudo-taking your own advice in the first picture? :p

Anonymous said...

JADE PUGET. DONT JUST SKIM OVER THIS, TAKE IT TO HEART. I HAVE OBTAINED VALUABLE KNOWLEDGE THAT I PLAN ON SHARING. Hey! Look here!....if Adam Carson has an adam's apple, it isn't called an "adam's apple." just an apple.

kirstie said...

Sweet! The very last one confuses me to no end. I've been staring at it forever.

Kylie said...

In all of them you have one foot off the ground and in the first one everyone is jumping did you plan that or was it a simutanious mishap? Either way that guitar throwing pic is awesome along with all the others.

-Kylie

P.S. COME BACK TO ARIZONA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Shelly Marie said...

Those pics are awesome. Espicially the one with your guitar in the air.

And here is a parody of Tik Tok my friend and I did for you

"Wake up in the mornin' feelin like Jade Puget, got a Gibson Les Paul guitar, but Blaqk don't use it.
Before I leave, gotta swoop my bangs, but when I leave for the show Minch aint getting snacks.

Im talking girls trying to touch my hair hair, Davey and his shoes shoes. Adam's on the drums dropping all our favorite beats. Wait wheres my granola?

Dont stop, gotta rock. Gotta make those synthes pop. Tonight, we're gonna dance. Like the ninjas that we are."

Charlie. said...

Was that at the Brissy show Jade? I think that was the only one dark enough at the end your set for that lighting. Fun fun fun, and hell yeah the guitar throwing one. Damn impressive, hope Jim was high 5ed for that. Missing you guys already, I know you're still in Oz, but come back soon <3 The Oz DF are having withdrawals haha

Shy Girls Win said...

Oh, hi... again! Yay, I saved the pictures to my laptop! Yay!

I can't wait until I'm old enough to move out of my house. You guys rock! I am clearly obsessed, cuz I only have you and your sideproject and hunter's sideproject on my iPod, you guys are my log in icon, on my wall, on a t-shirt, on pictures printed out taking up half my desk, on my phone background, and on a lot of other things. Oh, and you guys are ALWAYS on my mind, whether it's a song like God Called In Sick Today or End Transmisson or if I'm wondering how you can get your hair how it was before with the blonde.

Hehe, be'd REALLY kewl if you emailed me. But I am just ONE of your fans. But if you get the chance.... you know what to do...... right?

Cassii Mitchell said...

PS WHO'S WATCHING CANADA VS. USA TONIGHT?!?!?!?! I AM!!! AND I'M VOTING FOR CANADA BABY!!!! BECAUSE CANADA ROCKS AND THEY HAVE ROOBERTO LUONGO AND RICK NASH AND SIDNEY CROSBY AND MARTIN BRODEUR AND MARC-ANDRE FLEURY AND... AND... JAROME IGINLA!!!!

Steph said...

that's mad impressive.

did you ever stage dive jade? now that would be COOL AS HELL


that was an accidental oxymoron

Kristin said...

You guys have been watching Johnny Weir, haven't you? Such grace and form!

Anonymous said...

Ahh, the first picture made me crack a smile. Looks like some ballet lessons were involved.
You guys are great. Hope you're all enjoying the tour as much as your fans. Hope to see you guys when you come back to the US. :]

CaughtBetween said...

Nice posing in the first one. How could someone throw a guitar? O_o Better question how did you catch it without your wrist snapping. Those flying guitars are rather heavy. (Non flying ones. Still heavy for me.)

books_and_coffee101 said...

Wow those pictures are really awesome. i think i would buy a print of the guitar throwing one. BTW I'M GONNA GET TO GO SEE YOU GUYS AT ROCKET TOWN IN NASHVILLE!!! i'm as excited as my mom was when she first got to go see aerosmith..... that's a compliment. I feel like after i see you guys..... i might not have a "things i want to do list" on my blogspot anymore LOL. I keep getting to do those things lol.

Anonymous said...

I had a dream about you guys last night. I really love it when I dream about things important to me.

Most of my dreams are really stupid.

But it was a very good dream, and it seemed so real.

Unfortunately it wasn't, and in real life. We aren't friends.

I wish we were. lol

This may be really weird. I dunno.

But I hope you are having a good tour, I saw you when you played in Providence, RI.

Finally...

But to stop droning on, I hope you guys stay safe and have fun.

I really appreciate you all, you really have no idea. lol

But maybe my dream will come true and we will be friends one day. :]

I wonder if you'll be able to read this...

Dominic said...

Crash Love tab? Sorry, been aleast a month or so since ive bugged you about it =)

p.s i noticed at the end of the beauiful thieves video you can hear the intro to end transmission begin to play for a split second. Coincidence, or a sure sign of whats to come next?

CASSII!!!!!! said...

HEY JADE GUESS WHAT THERE'S A SEGMENT PIECE ON TSN WITH A BUNCH OF RANDOM HOCKEY MOMENTS (Jonas Gustavsson... my love forever) AND THEY PLAY BEAUTIFUL THIEVES IN IT AND SHOW LITTLE PIECES OF THE VIDEO MAYBE YOU ALREADY KNEW THAT BUT I HAD TO FREAK OUT SORRY!!!!!!!

MJ said...

My iPhone pictures are never half as good as those. I am thoroughly amazed.

Holy damn look at all those people out there.

CAIT said...

You're crazy throwing that beautiful guitar so far. O.O x

Miss Jessica Key said...

I was at the Adelaide show :) AWESOME! You must must must must come back here and do your own show. Soundwave just isn't enough! Especially when you were only in Adelaide FOR ONLY ONE DAY! :(

jdi said...
