Boys of blink-182 getting better with age

Has blink-182 grown up?

Gone are the days when the group's concerts featured billboard-sized curse words burning above their heads, and album titles like Enema of the State.

Then again, this is blink-182.

They are older, wiser and better performers than they were the last time they were in town two years ago, but "mature" isn't exactly the word that should be ignited as the backdrop just yet.

The guys in the band may be married, and some fathers, but guitarist/vocalist Tom Delonge, bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker still consider cargo shorts formal wear. At the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion on Wednesday, the between-song potty humor was reduced, but they still belly laughed at each other's "Yo' mama" jokes.

"I smell pot," shrieked Delonge halfway through the group's 80-minute set.

Yes, he did. Blink-182 followed "Spanglish" hip-hop consortium and marijuana activists Cypress Hill on stage. There was a 30-minute break between sets, but the aroma of rapper B Real's self-described "Bob Marley-sized spliff" hung in the air much longer.
