It’s a three-in-one night of music: The Archrivals with the Chuck Lichtenberger Collective and Dancer Delight all perform on Friday, June 4 at a benefit for local organization Just Economics. According to the community outreach program’s web site, “Just Economics is building a dynamic movement in Western North Carolina for economic justice and sustainability. Currently, we have three primary areas of work: Asheville-Buncombe Living Wage Campaign, Living Wage Employer Certification Program and Community Education and Leadership Development.”
Knowing about economics, JE must have figured that husband and wife duo Chuck Lichtenberger and Stephanie Morgan could — with a little help from their friends — morph into any number of musical acts. The Archrivals features the couple’s alter egos: Keyboardist/singer/songwriter Lichtenberger appears as the Archrival in basketball shorts and cape; singer/songwriter/guitarist Morgan appears as Dancer Delight in disco apparel.
Dancer Delight is an act in her own right; she’s a singer and sometimes a DJ and she’s very, very positive and cheerful. The Chuck Lichtenberger Collective, on the other hand, involves no alter egos but does turn out excellent pop-savvy jazz with a revolving cast of collaborators.
All that’s missing from the Rocket Club (401 Haywood Rd., Asheville, 505-2494) lineup is Stephaniesid and The Alien Music Club and who knows! Hint: According to the Archrivals Myspace page, you can get into the show for just $5 “if you say ‘Cars Run on Gasoline to the door person.” 10 p.m.
