Eight Gigs: Ace Frehley

Sat., Feb. 4, 7 p.m., Jackson Rancheria, $40-$50

Former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley makes a rare appearance in Jackson this week. For those only familiar with his old band’s repertoire, Frehley also had a very successful solo career playing as Frehley’s Comet or simply under his own name. And while the axeman may not be as prolific as his fans would like (his latest record is a collection of covers called Origins Vol. 1), his live show cannot be denied. Expect to hear lots of Ace’s Kiss material along with tracks from his last original album, 2014’s exceptional Space Invader. 12222 New York Ranch Road in Jackson, www.acefrehley.com.
