Review: Blink-182's show at Smirnoff one to phone home about
By TERESA GUBBINS / The Dallas Morning News
Kids 1, classic rock 0.

That was the score Monday at Smirnoff Music Centre, when the 2004 summer concert season opened with a triple bill starring Blink-182, Taking Back Sunday and Cypress Hill.

Smirnoff will host its share of rock dinosaurs later in the summer. (Hello Fleetwood Mac!) But this opening event was a big yes to the short set, attracting a crowd of nearly 10,000, mostly kids between 10 and 21, some with parents in tow.

The biggest draw was California pop-punk trio Blink-182, who headlined. Taking Back Sunday, an effusive quintet from New York whose pop-punk sound resembled Blink's, had its own fervent following, with blocks of fans singing along, mouths wide open, to songs such as "You're So Last Summer."

In the fickle pop world, Blink has remained one of the most popular picks for adolescent rockers ever since its '99 breakthrough disc, Enema of the State. But the trio is working to evolve: Its latest CD, a self-titled disc that came out last year, was not as simple or sunny as previous releases.

That same subtle maturation was evident at the show on Monday. For one thing, the stage was more sophisticated and elaborate than on prior tours. A purple backdrop studded with pinprick lights let the band create a starry-night effect. Cool quadrilateral screens flashed multiple images, from shots of the moonwalk to Marilyn Monroe to tubes of lipstick to TV-screen snow.
