If your ears are still ringing out in nostalgia for Aura Fest, not to worry: the great team behind the day-long fest is back! Get your fix at Halfway to Aura Fest, a mini-fest in the heart of Starland District.

Saturday’s lineup features a mix of touring and local talent across a variety of rock genres.

Baton Rouge band To Speak Of Wolves creates driving rock/hardcore; they most recently released an EP, ‘New Bones,’ via Cardigan Records.

Orlando band Makari, who find inspiration in artists like Circa Survive, Two Door Cinema Club, and Beach House, create progressive rock with ex-VersaEmerge and Decoder vocalist Spencer Pearson delivering soaring, melodic choruses.

Henrietta, a Savannah favorite, head up from Orlando to share their experimental indie. Pick up a copy of their latest release, Paper Wings, released in April on Animal Style Records.

Atlanta progressive rock/metal outfit Icaria are due to release a debut album, Transcendent, this month on Cardigan Records.

Savannah boys Between Symmetries are always a treat to see live; local gigs are a bit of a rare occurrence for the band these days, so catch ‘em while you can.

Savannah’s HOTPLATE just released an album, Any Surface Can Be Your Death Bed. As heavy and unusual as ever, the instrumental release is one complete song, clocking in at 22:24, and was recorded at The Garage Savannah by Matt Collett and Colin Motlagh. Leave it to HOTPLATE to create a winding, immersive thing of such intensity.

Savannah emo/melodic hardcore four-piece Amor///Exitium round out the bill along with oh sweet apathy, a Savannah-based emoviolence two-piece.

Moe’s Southwest Grill and Jennie’s Treats on the Street will be on site with snacks, and The Wormhole will give 10 percent off their bar and food with an Aura Fest wristband.

Saturday, June 10, 6 p.m., all-ages, $10 advance via brownpapertickets.com, $12 day-of
