Blink-182 plays a type of popular music called pop-punk. And although British rock critic Steven Wells of NME dismissed them at the beginning of the century as "indistinguishable from the increasingly tedious 'teenage dirtbag' genre they helped spawn," the band has had some notable influence among current West Coast-based rocanrol outfits, although the folks in FIDLAR and Wavves are probably loath to admit so. Anyway the reformed, re-visioned version of these ruffians (minus founding member and songwriter/guitarist/vocalist Tom DeLong) bring their bag of angst-filled tricks, including "All the Small Things" and "The Rock Show" to town on Sunday, Sept. 25. Hijinks will no doubt ensue. Tickets for this melodic yet somehow righteously raucous trip to the recent past cost between $18-141.
