Eight Gigs: Oden Sun

Sat., Sept. 12, On The Y, 8 p.m., $5

Singer Lance Ozanix fronts Sonoma County's finest heavy metal band Skitzo and is known more for barfing onstage during the close of his band's set than being a wholly competent singer. Santa Rosa's Oden Sun, however, was formed by guitarist Julian Kidd and features a veritable who's who of musicians from the immediate area including a much more subdued Ozanix on vocals. The band has already made considerable headway in the metal scene since forming in 2013 and its awesome Immortal Souls EP was largely the impetus. From playing major festivals in California and Nevada to playing smaller clubs, Oden Sun is a force. 670 Fulton Avenue, www.facebook.com/OdenSun33.
