If the lineup of this year’s III Points Music and Arts Festival in Miami – Brian Eno, Gorillaz, the xx, Lil B – is making you involuntarily drool but the logistical realities of making it to Miami are just a little out of reach, take (some) heart. The good thing about having an event like that “this” close means that Orlando is the beneficiary of offshoot events featuring some of the performers mixing it up with promising locals. Win-win. As with the Fest and Foreign Dissent and International Noise Conference and Pre-INC, “Road to III Points” is becoming a tradition. This year’s happening – at the Henao Center – features young South Floridian rulebreakers like artist/rapper POORgrrrl and ambient dreamscaper Lautlos. Orlando is being represented by the likes of Tiger Fawn, December Beaches and J.A.S.O.N. It’s a perfect chance to take the pulse of new music both local and regional and, hopefully, for the musicians to exchange ideas. Make a scene.

7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 29 | Henao Contemporary Center, 5601 Edgewater Drive | 407-272-0317 | henaocenter.com | $7
