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!
