Eight Gigs: Hed PE
Thu., Nov. 17, 7 p.m., The Boardwalk, $18-$20
Huntington Beach’s purveyors of gangsta-styled punk rock return to their favorite haunt in the suburbs for yet another night of debauchery. Don’t be fooled by the massive amount of vaping and weed references; this is one group that knows how to craft clever, groove-laden songs. Since releasing its fantastic self-titled record back in 1997, singer Jared (real name Paulo Sergio Gomes) has rotated many talented members into the band, including current members Major Trauma (drums), Gregzilla (guitars) and Kid Bass (bass). 9426 Greenback Lane in Orangevale, www.hedperocks.com.
