Before I jump into this, the supposed story behind these videos is somewhat skewed, but it’s still incredibly awesome nonetheless.
Chiodos formed in 2001 under the moniker Chiodos Bros. They released their debut studio album, All’s Well That Ends Well, in 2005. According to this clip’s description, it was filmed “about four years” before it was uploaded in 2006, and that Chiodos “had just put out their All's Well That Ends Well CD,” meaning the band would’ve had to release the record around 2002.

So, someone’s timeline might be slightly skewed, but that doesn’t deter from the fact that Chiodos are extremely young here.
According to the remainder of the description, the kid (who claims to have been 16 years old at the time) messaged Craig (presumably on Myspace) after a promoter bounced on a show, asking if they would like to come play in the living room of his parents' house. Of course, they complied.
Once arriving at the house, Chiodos and fellow touring group Still Life Projector joined in some pre-gig antics and then played energetic, seemingly once-in-a-lifetime sets.
Seriously, how cool is this?
