Tasteful electronic label Relief in Abstract packaged up a sweet end-of- year gift for local music fans with Redpoint Music Festival, a two-day excursion into dance-driven beats, trippy visuals and original music. Day One sees Case Work, Boxing at the Zoo, Henrietta, Bellows and Ark at the community-driven venue the Space, no doubt packing the back room with inspired indie pop and crafted lo-fi compositions. The next day, catch Sales, Fortune Howl, Mr. 3, Grant and Native Feel at Orange Studio, the familiar stomp- ing ground of like-minded former music fest Total Bummer. If you’re curious why “Redpoint,” the name comes from a mountain-climbing term for free-climbing a route where you’ve previously fallen. It represents Relief in Abstract’s dogged endeavor to get Orlando on the map for its creative music culture, a feat RIA has succeeded in before and will undoubt- edly repeat with dependably bright efforts. 

REDPOINT MUSIC FESTIVAL 8:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 19; 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 20 | The Space, 1206 E. Colonial Drive; Orange Studio, 1121 N. Mills Ave. | reliefinabstract.com |$12 one-day pass, $20 two-day pass
