Calling all ye apostles of psychedelia, ye ramblin' jammers, ye breezy groovers, ye thinking adults and all you lightheaded punks des fleurs... We are thrilled to announce that ULTIMATE PAINTING will be performing in the Blue Room on September 24th, 2015!
ULTIMATE PAINTING is an already distinguished UK duo comprised of Jack Cooper and James Hoare. As the story goes, these two spent time touring together with Cooper’s band, Mazes, supporting Hoare’s band, Veronica Falls. A fateful friendship developed and, to make it quick, demos were recorded and swapped, which all eventually led to their debut seeing release on Trouble In Mind, one of our top favorite Chicago labels. The project has been so thoroughly adored for its uncomplicated, beautifully calm approach to VU-style riff-making and loose vibes that the follow up, Green Lanes, was released a mere ten months later AKA last month! Needless to say we’re so so glad they’re bringing their way through the great land of Nashville, TN.
But that’s not all, no, not a bit. Joining U.P. for the night are label mates SALAD BOYS who will be making their debut in the USA on this trip, all the way from Christchurch, New Zealand, if you can believe it. They’re a real jangle-pop force of nature for those of you enticed by and entrenched in ANY fraction of the Flying Nun catalog. Take your pick 'cause it's gonna stick.
Last but never least, local kraut-psych stalwarts (and longtime Trouble in Mind-ers) The Paperhead will open the show with their inimitable punch of harmony, seemly bass, tactful-yet-furious drumming, and laser-esque Farfisa organ. Sure, their record is beautiful (shout-out to the flautist), but I PROMISE YOU this is a band you need to experience live. So, come to TMR, and do just that.
WAIT though! If you purchase tickets before September 15th, three lucky attendees will be randomly selected to win a SPECIAL PRIZE provided by the fine folks up north at TiM: rare and uncirculated test pressings of each band’s most recently release.
Don't sleep on this! COME HANG OUT!

There's no band that can lay claim to being the true best in the business, except VIDEO.
Crawling from the musical wasteland that is Texas, their intentions are simple: they want to own the world. While the band features members of Bad Sports, Wiccans, Radioactivity, and the Wax Museums (just to name a few), VIDEO stands on its own as one of the most powerful and visceral bands active today. Combining equal parts snotty punk, hard rock, and melodic dissonance, VIDEO are pioneers of their own subgenre, Hate Wave. Going well beyond the confines of paint by numbers punk, and generic, flaccid garage rock, VIDEO forges a new cult like movement. So pay attention, consumers, and don't miss out on the best thing going today.
Long Live The New Faith, Long Live VIDEO.

We will be making a couple appearances with our neighbors in Atlanta and Birmingham before stopping with our friends at Billy Reid's Shindig in Florence, Alabama. Here's the schedule:
We will be stocked with all the Rolling Record Store-exclusive merchandise, including some new state-shaped TMR pins (Georgia and Alabama being added to the collection on this trip). And there may even be some limited edition vinyl hiding on the truck... Come and see us and find out for yourselves why the Third Man Rolling Record Store is the most coolest record store on wheels.
See you on the road!
