Based out of Orlando, Makari is a five-piece ambient rock outfit signed to InVogue Records. With dreamy and delicate guitar work, driving bass and drums, and soaring and melodic lyric-driven vocals, the band allows you to drift on a sonic-sea of delay and reverb just long enough before dropping you back into high-energy grooves.

An Evening with Pete Yorn: You & Me at The Loft
Sunday, January 20th at 8:00pm
It seems like only yesterday that we first heard musicforthemorningafter, which came out back in 2001. Pete Yorn‘s brand new album and Capitol Records debut, ArrangingTime, plays with the elasticity of the years both in between and since — it’s not only a culmination of the Los Angeles by way of New Jersey artist’s adventurous latter-day projects, but a return to his original leaner methods.
