'INDIE' BENEFIT ... Two young Palo Altans are organizing their second annual benefit concert with independent rock bands to raise money for the It Gets Better Project and the Trevor Project, which support gay teens. "My brother and I were both deeply upset by the rash of gay-teen suicides last year, and in response, my brother decided to organize a benefit concert," said Julian Hornik, a junior at Palo Alto High School. His brother Noah attends Phillips Academy in Massachusetts. The event, called It Gets Indie, is scheduled for 8 p.m. June 23 at the Great American Music Hall at 859 O'Farrell St. in San Francisco. Performers are the bands Princeton and Local Hero, and Julian Hornik, himself a singer-songwriter. Tickets are $25. For more, go to facebook.com/itgetsindie.
