“Palimpsest” releases new episodes bi-weekly on Tuesdays.
The co-creators of the Asheville-based audio drama perform two episodes live on Aug. 12 at The Magnetic Theatre.
At under 24 minutes, Ribcage delivers less quantity than the average album (that’s why it’s billed as an EP), but in terms of quality, it’s not lacking in the least.
Local pop-rock artist Ian Ridenhour starts off 2018 with a bang, introducing his third album “Ribcage” to Asheville fans on Friday, Jan. 26 at Isis Music Hall.
Local indie-pop artist Ian Ridenhour just launched his latest music video, filmed by Kira Bursky, on PopMatters.com.

White Horse Black Mountain hosts the holiday show on Friday, Dec. 23
Though the subject matter comes from tricky emotions and real talk, Ridenhour’s songs are far from downers. Instead, his writing is pop-savvy and smart; his performances are dynamic, with hooky melodies, frenzied riffs and kinetic, danceable energy.
Need some good news on your Monday? Here’s a double dose. Two local musical acts are premiering new music videos today.
The Other Way Around tackles many of these big-picture themes, but LaMotte’s approach is subtle. “I don’t like songs that are all message-y, that hit people over the head,” he says. His music almost always has an objective, “but I want to make the point artfully, in such a way that people can interpret it as they like.”
White Horse Black Mountain hosts the teen takeover on the last Sunday of each month at 6 p.m. The next headlining act is Neesh on July 31.
Musical collaborators BJ Leiderman, David LaMotte and other special guests will join Ridenhour for his sixteenth birthday performance at White Horse Black Mountain on Sunday, June 19.
