Our 15th anniversary showcase is only a few weeks away, and so far we’ve already announced amazing acts like The Olivia Tremor Control, Bear In Heaven, Dent May, Crooked Fingers, and more. We have another artist joining our Friday night lineup, and it is Akron/Family!
The long weekend consists of two nights of showcases and one finale party called Prom, all of which are open to the public. Over three nights, Thursday through Sunday, July 26, 27 & 28, two showcases will be held at the Georgia Theatre, and the third night (Saturday July 28) will be Team Clermont’s infamous prom held at The Melting Point.
Astronautalis (aka Andy Bothwell) will be performing Saturday morning at the return of the highly competitive “K’s vs W’s Kickball Showdown.” In addition, we will be hosting our first record fair with Team Clermont’s label partners, individual local vendors and community record store friends.
Three-day wristbands are available now through TicketBiscuit for only $25!
Akron/Family is a folk influenced experimental rock group formed in 2002, currently comprised of Dana Janssen, Seth Olinsky, and Miles Seaton. The group spent the end of 2009 and half of 2010 exploring the future of sound through Bent Acid Punk Diamond fuzz and Underground Japanese noise cassettes, lower case micro tone poems and emotional Cagean field recordings, rebuilding electronic drums from the 70’s and playing them with sticks they carved themselves. Upon miraculous resuscitation of the original AKAK hard drive, the album layers thousands of minute imperceptible samples of their first recordings with fuzzed-out representations of their present beings to induce pleasant emotional feeling states and many momentary transcendent inspirations. The resulting record, released in February, 2011 is titled S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT.
We’re excited to announce that this year’s prom theme is “Back To The Future”. Time to track down a DeLorean you can rent for the evening to transport your date, and start planning which era or character you’ll channel with your outfit. We invite you to dress as a character from any era the films visit, meaning 1885, 1955, 1985 or 2015!
It’s all part of the return of the Team Clermont Summer Showcase and Prom presented by Normaltown Records, as the Athens, GA firm celebrates 15 years of excellence in music publicity and radio promotion.
The long weekend also consists of two nights of showcases, all of which are open to the public. Over three nights, Thursday through Sunday, July 26, 27 & 28, two showcases will be held at the Georgia Theatre, headlined by critically acclaimed national act Bear In Heaven (Brooklyn, NY) psych-pop pioneers The Olivia Tremor Control (Athens, GA)
The third night (Saturday July 28) will be our prom held at The Melting Point. 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. Get ready to dance, as Yacht Rock Revue performs a set of 80s cover songs they call “Reagan Rock Prom!”
Also scheduled to perform: Dent May, Crooked Fingers, Pattern Is Movement, Wild Moccasins, Astronautalis, and more!
