Eight Gigs: The White Buffalo

Fri., Feb. 5, 7 p.m., Ace of Spades, $20-$22

Dust off your leather chaps and barely suppressed rage in time to catch Jake Smith, a.k.a. the White Buffalo, a.k.a. the voice of the Sons of Anarchy soundtrack. The California-raised singer-songwriter has a voice like Eddie Vedder with a smoking habit. With the long hair and full beard, everything works in concert so that tracks like “Come Join the Murder” or covers of “House of the Rising Sun” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” setting the mood for the TV show makes all the sense in the world. Alice Drinks the Kool-Aid is also on the bill. 1417 R Street, http://thewhitebuffalo.com.
