Eight Gigs: Norma Jean
Wed., Oct. 14, 6:30 p.m., The Boardwalk, $20-$22
Norma Jean broke onto the post-hardcore scene more than a decade ago and combined genres like metal and noise to create its aggravated sound. This year marks the tenth anniversary of the band's second album, O' God, The Aftermath, and although its latest tour will focus on songs from that album entirely, the guys still plan to release new material sometime in 2016. Norma Jean is no stranger to the darker realms of the industry because its rap sheet includes supporting the Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne, during Ozzfest. 9426 Greenback Lane in Orangevale, www.normajeannoise.com.
