On November 30th 2022, AFI brought the Bodies Tour 2022 to Dallas Texas at the famous House of Blues. Along with the was a band called Drab Majesty. Very interesting sound to these guys. Only 2 members. Guitarist, Andrew “Deb Demure” Clinco and Keyboardist, Alex “Mona D” Nicolaou. Very interesting set by the duo from Los Angeles, California. It’s kind of a Depeche Mode type sound. A short but sweet set by the guys to get everyone ready for the main event.

There’s 2 distinct era’s of AFI, the heavy, hard and fast Punk side and the second is the merge of the hardcore punk and a more sensible radio style. 2003’s “Sing the Sorrow” is when AFI really hit the main stream, hitting No. 5 on the Billboard album charts, four-time Vans Warped Tour participants and one of the most substantial “emo/punk” breakthrough acts of its era thanks to songs like “Girl’s Not Grey”.

AFI really brought it on this night. I have been hearing they were giving it 110% and they did not disappoint a nearly 2 hour show. They didn’t slow down for 1 second. A band that is known to change up their setlist almost nightly, you never know what to expect. They played a mix of their old school and new Bodies tracks. A few favorites of mine that I was extremely happy to hear were towards the end of the set. “Silver and Cold”, “Miss Murder” and “The Leaving Song”.

Vocalist Davey Havok, stylish as always in a heavy leather jacket emblazoned with “Death Of The Party” on its back, routinely ran to either edge of the stage to get up and personal with fans in the front row. Almost had to stop the show to help an issue of someone being a little too rowdy, but all was well and they continued the set.

Drummer Adam Carson, guitarist Jade Puget and bassist Hunter Burgan laid down the groundwork for Havok’s powerful presence. More than 30 years on the scene and AFI always give a fantastic show and strive to never let anyone down. I highly recommend seeing these guys anytime they come through your town and be sure to check out their album “Bodies” that was released in 2020.
