The Institution is San Francisco's very own flavor of alternative/melodic hard rock with a progressive twist. The band formed in late 2004 when Jay Scott (vox/guitar) met Pete Markovina (drums). Later joined by Sage Ortiz on Bass, The Institution has released their freshman LP Hegemony which is available for purchase or streaming everywhere.
