With all of their peers breaking up and then getting back together a few years later, this SoCal punk foursome seems pretty stable by comparison. The group, which formed in 1984, still has three of its original members — something that can’t be said for too many other ’80s punk bands. That means fans can always count on a new record (they’re now working on another one, due next year), even if it means putting up with crap like 2003’s “Hit That” from time to time. The Offspring are technically still touring in support of last year’s Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace, but expect to hear all the old hits. Boston’s Dropkick Murphys and L.A. punks Time Again open at 7 p.m. at Time Warner Cable Amphitheater (1887 W. 3rd St., 216.522.4822). Tickets: $34.50 advance, $37 day of show. — Emily Zemler
