    SOUND THE ALARM:  For thirty years in the business, Welsh band "The Alarm" have pretty much seen and heard and played it all.  Some have even counted them among the best live acts to ever take the stage.  From adrenaline-filled acoustic rock played with a vengeance, to deft rock n' roll played from the heart, the Alarm's hold something special with lasting significance for their fans.  And after breaking up, the band is back together again, and they're on stage in CT tonight.  The Alarm is playing Infinity Hall in Norfolk.  Tickets are $35-$50.  the show starts at 8 p.m.
