This summer, Relief in Abstract celebrated three years as an indie label/artist collective here in Orlando, launching artists like XXYYXX and Fortune Howl to national attention, releasing chill, dance-minded new music and curating exciting shows featuring electronic artists they support. Now, they've announced Redpoint Music Festival (Dec. 19-20), a two-day event featuring a great lineup including Case Work, Ark, Fortune Howl, Sales, Mr. 3, Grant, Native Feel, Boxing at the Zoo, Henrietta and Bellows at the Space and Orange Studio. (RSVP!)
The Space is naturally much more intimate and eclectic than the broad, open environment of Orange Studio, for those unfamiliar with both venues. Orange Studio has been home to highly creative local events, though, including Cardboard Art Festival and Total Bummer, so we've seen equally wild ideas come to entertaining fruition there. Stoked to see what RIA does with that much blank canvas.
Relief in Abstract is the local authority on electronic music for good reason, so expect both days to rule (single-day passes are $12 or $20 for both days). For a sample of Case Work's live show, check out their Off the Avenue performance below:
