Team Clermont and Elf Power want to take you to the prom

Team Clermont is hosting a nice little festival in Athens, Georgia and are hoping you will grab a tux and head to the prom with them. Also spiking the punch are going to be Elf Power, Man Man, Lylas, White Whale, John Roderick (on Long Winters fame) and a host of other local acts.

The festival runs from August 3-5 and check out the schedule:
Thursday August 3rd
LYLAS -One of Nashville’s many rising indie stars, LYLAS plays out-of-time Cole Porter meets Donovan chamber-pop that is almost too intricate and well-written to be called rock and roll but too sly to be anything else. This band’s debut album, Lessons for Lovers, has been steadily building buzz all year.
MP3:: LYLAS - His Master’s Merriment

Friday, August 4th
Man Man - 40 Watt Club, Athens - The Philly band that Pitchfork called America’s most underrated live band will be bringing their ramshackle Beefheart maraca-ed brilliance to Athens.
MP3:: Man Man - 10 lb. Moustache
White Whale - Merge Records’ newest sure-fire hitmakers, Lawrence, Kanas-based White Whale features Matt Suggs (of Butterglory fame) and a former member of the Get-Up Kids. Epic pop songs that recall the swing-for-the-fences aspects of Lieber-Stoller mixed with fellow travelers Secret Machines and Okkervil River.
MP3:: White Whale -The Admiral
