You’ve got to admire the forethought of Resonant Rogues, an Asheville band holding a variety show to kick off its Kickstarter campaign. The event, called Revue Nouveau, promises an “unparalleled collection of local talent” to visually supplement the old-time and gypsy jazzers’ vocal harmonies and string-heavy instrumentation. Puppeteer Madison Cripps, burlesque afficionado Memphis Moonshine and aerial arts instructor Waverly Jones will all share the spotlight throughout the evening. Multi-instrumentalist and dance teacher Sparrow Pants will demonstrate her belly dancing prowess alongside Liz Azi before pairing up with bandmate Keith Smith for a swing dance routine. Stick around, because Resonant Rogues plan to save their most upbeat dancin’ tunes for last. Revue Nouveau hits The Mothlight on Thursday, Oct. 23, at 9 p.m. $10. themothlight.com.
