Ace Frehley of Kiss
CLASSIC ROCK— A founding member of the iconic and revered hard rock band Kiss, Ace Frehley, plays a solo show, stripped from the face paint. A classic rock legend in the music scene since the early '70s, Frehley has probably seen all aspects of the sex, drugs and rock 'n roll lifestyle. He may leave the infamous KISS antics at home—forget the smoking guitars, shooting rockets and blood spitting, but his talent shines through in this solo tour. Still killing it, he is a musical maverick, and a prominent guitarist—well respected by his peers. Expect to witness a high-energy show full of riffs from his career in KISS and as a solo artist. // 7pm. Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St., Bend. $59-70. Towertheatre.org.
Ravi Coltrane Quintet
JAZZ— Tune in for a night of soothing saxophone by Grammy-nominated bandleader Ravi Coltrane. A product of jazz royalty, John and Alice Coltrane, Ravi has released six albums and has performed with everyone from Stanley Clarke to Carlos Santana. A legend in the making, Ravi is sure to entertain with his free flowing post pob jazz style that leaves much to interpretation and improvisation. Creative and greatly admired, Ravi promises a show not to be missed and is the last in the inaugural Riverhouse Jazz series. // 6:30pm. Riverhouse on the Deschutes, 3075 N. Business 97, Bend. $60.
