  1. Drew, does the countdown work now?

  2. Holy shitt im getting so excited! Anyone know the setlist?

  3. I accidentally, over-slept, and missed part of it...And, now, I have been waiting for like 10 minutes for it to load (seeing the nasty comments that people leave, on the side, but still, not able to see AFI :-\). I think that someone said that they were playing "Medicate", a few minutes ago, though, and I don't see that on the set-list...I also, think that they'd play "Miss Murder", and "Live Like Winter" (especially, there, since it's a holiday-oriented event)...Maybe, you're updating it, as it goes, though...Dunno....Just hope that it will load, and I can start watching it, already! :-| Oh, said that you'd post it, as it goes...So, I guess, that much of it is, already, over. :-| Are you guys gonna put it up on here, at some point?! (Are you able to?!)~*Kristin*PS-Drew, I saw you leave a comment...:-P

  4. Yes, Im updating it song by song. And Mike is recording it for everyone.

  5. The song is called Love Like Winter.I just updated the setlist :)

  7. Yes, I know...It was a typo. (I should know, I'm signing it for my ASL class!)And, thank you, Mary, and Mike! That's very cool! :-)Unfortunately, it only worked for me, for the last two songs...But, it was, still, very cool! :-)~*Kristin*

  8. I also recorded the video. Currently uploading to If you'd like the link, please contact me either via AIM (Lv4Scientologist) or email (

    Okk people I uploaded the FLAWLESS MP3'S AND YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THEM NOW

  14. KROQ's live recordings...I thought they had improved.. Last year's quality was way better. What happened there?

  15. Oh man this is awesome- sincerely thank you! :D

  16. Dan- that was a really funny video. Thanks for that link. Are there any more like that?

  17. Dan that video was awesome. Haha, thanks!!

  18. Sorry, but they just did not sound good that night. :/

  19. Rory, sorry I don't know of any other videos. The only reason I knew about that one was because I was at the concert when it happened ^_^. That place was incredible I was at most 2 people back from the barrier between the stage almost the entire show. Haha, most epic concert ever.

  20. If you want to update this post, here are some pictures. These two are from the website: then Mark from Buzznet took these:

  21. I agree. Not too spectacular. They sounded much better in Oakland on Friday. Something was either off with Jade's guitar or he was just missing notes everywhere. Davey sounded a bit strained too.Still, really cool to add another full-length show to my collection. Thanks!
