Crooked Fingers Joins Team Clermont Summer Showcase!

Eric Bachmann (also of Archers of Loaf) writes, records, and performs songs under the name Crooked Fingers. Though he resides in Los Angeles, he spends much of his time in Athens, GA, where he recorded last year’s brilliant Breaks in the Armor at The Bakery with Matt Yelton (live sound engineer for the Pixies) throughout the winter of 2010/2011, enlisting the help of Liz Durrett on backing vocals. It’s a cohesive and diverse set of songs with less adorned and more direct and affecting arrangements. Beautifully understated, artfully phrased, and ultimately a paean to perseverance, the album seems to suggest that the breaks in the armor are more important than the armor itself.

Crooked Fingers joins our lineup, which includes Bear In Heaven, The Olivia Tremor Control, Astronautalis, Yacht Rock Revue, and more as we celebrate our 15 year anniversary here in Athens, GA!

Tickets and three-day wristbands are available now from TicketBiscuit!

Full details for our event, including Prom details and the K’s vs. W’s Kickball Showdown can be viewed here:

Yacht Rock Review - for Cropper

Yacht Rock Revue To Play Team Clermont Prom This Year!

We’ve been releasing details about our upcoming Team Clermont Summer Showcase & Prom, where we will be celebrating our 15 year anniversary with concerts, a prom, a kickball game, a record fair, and more!

We’ve already announced our two showcases, which will be headlined by critically acclaimed national act Bear In Heaven (Brooklyn, NY) and psych-pop pioneers The Olivia Tremor Control (Athens, GA.)!

The weekend will culminate in a Team Clermont tradition, the Prom, to be held at The Melting Point on Saturday night. A favorite for out-of-towners and locals alike, the Prom takes the attendees back to the times of cover bands, questionable outfits, photo booths and punch bowls, without all of the awkwardness of being a teenager. Today, we announce Yacht Rock Revue as our Prom band, who have prepared a set of 80s cover songs they call “Yacht Rock Revue Presents Reagan Rock Prom”!

We’ve also made available for purchase Three-Day Passes ($25) for the weekend through Ticketbiscuit. Quantities are limited, so be sure to purchase yours now!
