The Chain Gang of 1974 + AFI at The Riviera Theatre 1/31

Tuesday night proved a great way to end the first month of great live music in 2017.

aimg_8487The Chain Gang of 1974, the project of Kamtin Mohager, took the stage after Souvenirs as the venue was rapidly filling up. The vast majority of those in attendance were there to see AFI, but the crowd was respectful and appreciative of the opening groups.  The members of The Chain Gang of 1974 played a very upbeat and energetic setlist that kept concert-goers energy levels high as they approached the headlining band.

Long time fans of AFI had waited a long time to see them live, and they certainly did not disappoint.  For more photos, click below.
