The Blood Tour 1.25.17
w/Souvenirs and The Chain Gang of 1974
Last Wednesday the Showbox had A Fire Inside (Get it? A Fire Inside the Showbox? AFI? That’s funny!), along with some Souvenirs and The Chain Gang of 1974.
All these bands played to a sold out crowd that was ready to rock. Everyone was there to see AFI, but gave a great Seattle welcome to the Souvenirs and The Chain Gang of 1974, both out of Southern California with different styles of music that meshed well together. The show started out kinda slow with the Souvenirs mellow rock, but picked up speed pretty quick with The Chain Gang. Then went from zero to a hundred in about .1 seconds when AFI took the stage. There was tons of fun, complete with crowd surfing and a circle pit for their entire performance, that included two encores, I might add!
Here’s links to everyone’s website & Facebook pages. Be sure to check out the Souvenirs brand new EP entitled Posture of Apology, AFIs brand new release The Blood Album, and be on the look out for The Chain Gang of 1974s newest EP coming soon. All their music can be found in all the usual places!
