  • USD NOT ACCEPTED: OLIVIA JEAN'S DEVIL'S NIGHT TICKETS

    Posted by Third Man on 8 September 2014

    It's been four years since we last invited the prince of darkness to take over Third Man headquarters, but a certain October record release has us feeling rather bloodthirsty...

    Announcing Olivia Jean's Record Release Party, otherwise known as DEVIL'S NIGHT, to be held in the blue room October 30th. We plan to delight the demonic and spook the suspicious with more details in the coming weeks, but for now know that we are brewing up quite a special night. For those of you whose interest has already been piqued, there is one way and one way only for you to get a ticket before we release them to the masses, and that is by paying WITH YOUR BLOOD.

    On October 13th, The Red Cross will be at Third Man Records collecting your payments-by-the-pint. Each offering will be acknowledged with a gift of 2 tickets to Devil's Night as well as the guarantee of 1 limited edition version of Olivia Jean's Bathtub Love Killings, officially released the next day, October 14th. If you are unable to donate for some reason, you are more than welcome to bring someone who can in your place.

    Oh, this interests you!? What a wretched bunch you are... Send an email to blood@thirdmanrecords.com with your full name, address and phone number, and we will be in touch (in the order messages are received) with instructions as to how to make an appointment IF we can accommodate you. Space is VERY limited. No walk-in appointments available. 

    For those of you who are a bit squeamish, pull yourselves together: regular tickets will be made available using normal currency closer to the date of the show (with a portion of proceeds set to be donated to the Red Cross) and limited edition records will be sold at future events, to be announced.

  • Light + Sound Machine Presents... STORY OF MY DEATH

    Posted by Third Man on 5 September 2014

    STORY OF MY DEATH

    d. Albert Serra
    Spain/France - 2013 - HD Video - 148 min - Catalan with English subtitles

    WEDNESDAY, September 17th, 7pm

    WINNER OF THE GOLDEN LEOPARD, 2013 LOCARNO FILM FESTIVAL

    Short Synopsis: Casanova gets to know his new manservant, who will bear witness to his final days of life. Leaving a French château with its typical 18th century atmosphere of licentiousness, he spends his final days in impoverished, dismal northern Europe. There, his world of frivolity and high society, as well as his Enlightenment rationalism, crumble when faced with a new, violent, esoteric and romantic force represented by Dracula and his eternal power.

    Discounted $8 tickets are available for Belcourt members via the Belcourt website. Regular $10 tickets are available at thirdmanstore.com and the day of the screening beginning at 6pm.

     

    September's Light + Sound Machine screening is Story of My Death, directed by Albert Serra.
