Fall Arts Best Bets: Indie Love in O-town

THX Management, Aestheticized and even New Granada bring in a tidy bunch of indie acts to town. But more often than not, said acts genearlly opt for the Orlando stop instead — it’s close enough to draw folks from Tampa but far enough away to make the bands feel like they’re playing a big city. The worthiest of the 90-minute trek are Scotland’s indie rock foursome Frightened Rabbit, fronted by brothers Scott and Grant Hutchison (Tues., Sept. 29, The Social, Orlando, $12); chamber rockin’ Portland quintet The Decemberists and their “A Short Fazed Hovel” tour (Wed., Sept. 30, Hard Rock Live, Orlando, $26-$30); another Portland-nite, the folk-meets-Rolling Stoners Blitzen Trapper (pictured) (Tues., Oct. 06, The Social, Orlando, $12 in advance/$14 dos); the electro-dance punk freakers Ghostland Observatory (Thurs., Oct. 29, House of Blues, Orlando, FREE courtesy of Southern Comfort); and Grammy-winning New Orleans electro-psyche rockers MuteMath (Thurs., Nov. 05, House of Blues, Orlando, $20-$56).
