We’re not sure what’s more awesome: the fact that the Orlando Is Tight compilation album is happening or that the fundraiser concert to get the ball rolling is stacked with rad bands that totally illustrate the comp’s message. Four bands on the bill will be featured on the comp – Panther Camp, Suck Brick Kid, Henrietta and Dryspell – and your ticket stub from the show can be redeemed to collect the comp when the CD is released, so stow it somewhere safe afterwards. There are more than 20 bands featured on the comp (which will also have a very limited vinyl release), including You Blew It!, Teen Agers, Neat Freak, the Passenger and Hungover. None of those other bands will appear for the benefit, but Gillian Carter, inimitable screamo from Palm Bay, charitably also joins the fun(draiser) to help bankroll the effort. Anyone who’s a part of any scene can verify how these collections accrue sentimental value over time, so good on Norsekorea Presents for doing everything but slacking on this tight idea. 

with Suck Brick Kid, Panther Camp, Dryspell, Gillian Carter, Henrietta | 7 p.m. Friday, July 10 | Backbooth, 37 W. Pine St. | 407-999-2570 | backbooth.com | $5-$8
