The Ridges’ entertaining live show and engaging sound — which mixes Indie Rock, Chamber and Folk music, among other styles — has made them MidPoint favorites. And the rest of the country has been digging what the band is doing as well; the group has played numerous showcases at South By Southwest, done a session for the popular Daytrotter series and participated in NYC’s CBGB Festival, among other tour dates across the eastern side of the Mississippi. The band has only one official recording available so far (a self-titled EP from four years ago), but hopefully the full-length teased for a 2014 release will see the light of day soon. In the meantime, see the band where its diverse, infectious sound really shines — live and on stage.
