10 Shows to See This Weekend

Blink-182, oh how we’ve missed you. With the new album California sans guitarist Tom Delonge (he’s out, calling in that pop-punk croon, to prove the existence of aliens), Blink-182 rushed to the top of the chart, knocking Drake from the top spot. It’s no surprise given the long shadow of their influence — every kid born after Reagan who likes to play three-chord guitar has learned a Blink-182 song at some early, fumbling point while picking up the instrument. On the new record California, Blink-182’s pop-punk production is a little too squeaky, though bassist Mark Hoppus hasn’t reformed in middle age. Consider the only lyrics from the 30-second “Brohemian Rhapsody”: "There’s something about you that I can’t quite put my finger in.” $27-$77, 7pm, AT&T Center, 1 AT&T Parkway, (210) 444-5000
