Backbooth under Norse Korea’s Kyle Raker
37 W. Pine St., 407-999-2570, backbooth.com

This year, longtime downtown club Backbooth returned from the brink of irrelevance as a concert venue after a couple of dismal years, and it’s all because of Kyle Raker. The boss of pace-setting indie promoter Norse Korea Presents was officially brought aboard as the club’s in-house talent buyer to restore the shine of a once-defining stage, and he’s since made BB a serious destination for marquee indie music once again.
