Heading up a laundry list of acts, Norma Jean comes through the Summit Music Hall tonight with Sleeping Giant, the Chariot, War of Ages, Close Your Eyes, Texas in July, I, the Breather, the Great Commision, Sovereign Strength and As Hell Retreats on the Scream The Prayer tour. The post-hardcore screamers have been together since the late '90s, and though the band contains none of its original members (minus guitarist Chris Day), Norma Jean's sharp sound has remained unchanged.
After leaving its longtime home label of Solid State for Razor & Tie, Norma Jean released its fifth studio album, Meridional, last year and has virtually been on tour ever since. This show is al-ages and tickets are $17.50-$20. Doors open at 3:30 p.m., bands start shortly thereafter. We've got tickets to the show. Wanna go?
