Smart bets web extra: The Archrivals and Soulgrass Folk Rebellion

“This week, Ashevillians, we appear at The One Stop,” writes Chuck Lichtenberger of The Archrivals. “It will rock. It will roll. It will save your soul.” If you’ve been to an Archrivals show before, you know this to be true. Great pop hooks, keyboard rock that actually rocks, and plenty of zany antics from the delightfully disturbed mind of Lichtenberger. This is the Archrivals first show in six months and, we’re told, a celebration of Lichtenberg’s birthday.

Soulgrass Folk Rebellion also performs. This is singer/songwriter Oso Rey’s post-Soulgrass Rebellion project.

Friday, Jan. 13. 10 p.m. showtime, $5 cover. Want free tickets? Xpress will give away a pair at 2 p.m. today. Be our friend on Facebook to win.

Watch some Archrivals’ behind the scenes footage from the making of the Mended Heart Records compilation:
