Athens-based orchestral folk-rock group, The Ridges, are playing at the Northside Tavern (4163 Hamilton Ave) with The Mitchells and Shiny and the Spoon on Friday, March 21st, 9pm, Free.
The Ridges are an orchestral folk-rock band from the Appalachian college town of Athens, Ohio. Rooted in the collaboration of Victor Rasgaitis (guitar, vocals) and Talor Smith (cello, vocals), the duo is supported live by a rotating cast of musicians who add classical and folk rock instrumentation ranging from cellos, violas, violins, upright bass, and horns to banjo, mandolin, accordion, and drums. Known for bringing an electrifying energy to acoustic music, MidPoint Music festival called them a “roostier, catchier Arcade Fire,” while Daytrotter.com described their sound as “the kind of Americana music that falls off the bone.” Never satisfied with anything less than unforgettable, The Ridges are committed to finding new ways to surprise their fans with fresh ideas. From an in-theater live film score to a record store exclusive choral recording, The Ridges passion for creatively customizing their definition of an indie band has gained them national momentum that is giving way to a full length debut album expected for release in 2014.

Born and raised in Sandpoint, Idaho, Shook Twins are a quirky folk band now hailing from coniferous forested Portland, Oregon. Identical twins, Katelyn and Laurie Shook, Kyle Volkman & Niko Daoussis form the core quartet. Central elements of the Shook Twins sound are a wide range of instrumentation, including banjo, guitar, upright bass, mandolin, face drum (beatbox), glockenspiel, ukulele, djembe and their signature golden egg. Beautiful twin harmonies, layered upon acoustic instrumentation coupled with Laurie’s inventive use of a looping machine, and Katelyn’s repurposed telephone microphone ,set their sound apart, creating an eclectic and eccentric blend of folk, roots, pop and fun.
