Ancient singers had no microphones, which meant audiences were quieter, vocalists were more strained, and barbershops were more likely to experiment with screamo. Dodge the screams and live the amplified dream with today's GrouponLive deal: for $35, you get one ticket for a seat in sections 11–17 to Honda Civic Tour Presents: blink-182 and My Chemical Romance at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center on Friday, September 16, at 7 p.m. (a $56 value before fees, or up to a $70.40 value online, including all ticketing fees). Doors open at 6 p.m.
Quintessential pop-punk idols blink-182 delight fans with up-tempo jams and a trademark, irreverent humor. Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge's raw vocals and brain-burrowing guitar riffs interweave with Travis Barker's toe-tap-inducing percussion to serve up aural stews that nourish eardrums weaned on diets of TV static. With a classic catalog of rebellious anthems and loss-tinged reflections on love including "All the Small Things" and "What's My Age Again?," the band draws on nearly two decades of tuneful hits. Pop-punk mainstays My Chemical Romance and Matt and Kim join the euphonic festivities with energetic aplomb. Musical merrymaking will take place at the outdoor Saratoga Performing Arts Center, which protects heads with a seat-covering pavilion while summer breezes cool off any fans who arrived on a unicycle while clad in head-to-toe leather.
