On Wednesday, Jan. 17, rock band Making Movies will take the stage at The Hi-Fi in Indianapolis along with Skaaholics and DJ Kyle Long.
Out of Kansas City, Missouri comes indie rockers Making Movies. Combining indie, Latin, and Afro-Cuban rock genres, this band has brought together a multitude of influences and sounds to create one of the most unique musical styles in rock ‘n’ roll.
This four-piece is made up of two sets of brothers. Enrique and Diego Chi, who make up the vocals as well as guitar and bass, respectively, Juan Carlos Chaurand handles keys and Andres Chaurand provides the drums. The band dates back to 2009, releasing their debut EP “Aguardiente” in June of 2012.
Currently touring to support their self-released studio album “I Am Another You,” which dropped on May 26, 2017, Making Movies has garnered positive reviews for their musical stylings as well as their live performances. The most recent album reached No. 3 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Album Sales and has been the band’s most successful release to date.

Local rock and ska band Skaaholics gets their shot to open for a well-known band at The Hi-Fi. Hailing from Indianapolis, this six-piece bilingual band has fused a multitude of genres including rock, reggae, ska, and hip-hop, creating a wonderfully catchy sound that is best heard in a live music setting.

DJ Kyle Long
Also out of Indianapolis is Kyle Long, a local DJ who’s one of the hardest working acts in the 317 area code. With ties to the music scene in more ways than one (including covering music for NUVO), Long has made a name for himself through his knowledge, respectfulness, and sheer talent behind the turntables.
The Hi-Fi doors open at 8:00 pm and the show starts at 9:00 p.m. Tickets are available for $10.
