blink-182 at Wellmont Theater - 9/6/13
Blink 182 - Wellmont Theatre, NJ - September 6th, 2013

We know this isn't exactly the type of thing we usually cover, but blink-182 is in town for some rare intimate shows (two of which are benefits) ahead of their Riot Fests appearances, and and after arguing that this band is actually important and influential, we decided to cover Friday night's (9/6) Wellmont Theater show (the first show to happen at the Montclair, NJ venue since Live Nation replaced Bowery Presents as the booker). Opening all of these shows is Red Bull Records-signed New Beat Fund (whose t-shirt sales are also supporting the charities at the benefit shows).

blink-182's other upcoming intimate NYC-area benefit shows include stops in Sayreville, NJ on Tuesday (9/10) at Starland Ballroom (benefit for Sandy Relief and cancer/diabetes research and treatment) and Brooklyn on Wednesday (9/11) at Music Hall of Williamsburg (benefit for burn treatment centers, plus research and treament for cancer, diabetes, and other life-threatening diseases). The latter date also includes DIIV on the bill, and both of those shows are sold out.
