Unless your name is Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson or Jennifer Hudson, nothing burns faster than the success of an “American Idol” contestant. Just ask Katharine McPhee, Ruben Studdard, Taylor Hicks and Blake Lewis, all of them dropped by their respective labels after poor post-“Idol” record sales. Looking to survive the curse of irrelevance is plucky season-seven runner-up David Archuleta. On the road in support of his self-titled debut album, he can be seen with Lesley Roy at the National on Wednesday, Feb. 25, at 7 p.m. $20-$23. 612-1900 or www.thenationalva.com. — Mike Hilleary
