Decades Records Showcase Brings the Cool Back to Clematis

Supporting local music comes in many forms: going to shows, buying merch, and even sharing a music video on your Facebook page. Passing out fliers was simply not enough support for one local crew. The need to provide a platform for South Florida's glorious strangeness is what inspired the creation of Decades Records. The West Palm Beach label, part of the Frenchkiss Group, is on a distinct mission to find and promote the area's most original music.

With club owner and coffee aficionado Rodney Mayo backing the label, it's no surprise that the inaugural Decades Records Showcase will be shining its light in one of his own venues, Respectable Street, this week. But it's not just the reputation of the bar that will no doubt transform this six-band assault into memorable performances. With two stages available and plenty of talent, each band is almost guaranteed to deliver big on sound and stage presence.
