Third Man Rolling Record Shop outside Frank in Downtown Austin (03/18/11)
Lazy blogging maybe, but I really just wanted an excuse to post my picture of the Third Man Rolling Record Shop.
Third Man Records has confirmed the March 29 release of three new Live at Third Man albums: Reggie Watts (TMR 80–who will perform two shows March 30 at New York’s Music Hall of Williamsburg, tickets for the second of which are still available here), Cold War Kids (TMR 081), and the 188.8.131.52.’s (TMR 076–which features a guest appearance by Third Man founder Jack White, playing guitar on “I Walk Like Jayne Mansfield”).
All releases will be vinyl LP only, no digital. Limited Black & Blue vinyl editions will be available at Third Man’s Nashville retail location for those who attended the shows.
Third Man has also confirmed the next two live performances to be hosted within the walls of its Nashville HQ.
More of the press release after the jump.
Friday April 1st, From Austin TX, White Denim will appear at Third Man ahead of the release of their fourth album “D,” out this May on Downtown Records. New tracks from “D” are currently streaming at http://whitedenimmusic.com/ and the Third Man crew could not be more excited to give folks a chance to preview new White Denim music in a live setting a month before the new album drops.
Then on Friday April 8th, Third Man’s favorite rapper/producer from Detroit, Black Milk, will bring his distinctive controlled yet emotional delivery and live band to perform at TMR. Having worked with J Dilla, Slum Village, Phat Kat and many more, Milk is a legend on the Detroit hip hop scene. His fifth self-produced solo album, “Album Of The Year,” was released last year, and he’ll be following it up by dropping into Third Man Studios to record a single with Jack White co-producing, for future release as a Third Man 7-inch and digital single.
