Olivia Jean and her amazing band will be taking the stage on CONAN next Monday, November 10th! Be sure to set your DVR’s or tune into TBS at 11/10c to catch the band's late night television debut!
The 7” vinyl single for Jack White's “Would You Fight For My Love?,” featuring the exclusive non-album B-side cover of Dean Fertita's “Parallel," the closing track from 2009’s Hello=Fire, is now available for purchase via the web store and our Nashville storefront. It will also be available (along with the final remaining general admission tickets to Jack's January Bridgestone Arena show) via the Third Man Rolling Record Store from 7-9pm in Nashville this evening at Fat Bottom Brewing Company for Lightning 100's DJ night, featuring our own Ben Swank and Ben Blackwell.

The Dough Rollers formed in 2008 when Malcolm Ford and Jack Byrne first decided to put their passion for American roots music to work by trying their hand at earnest, neo-revivalism. But, of course, after three years of touring and the addition of Graham Norwood on bass and Kyle Olson on drums, their sound evolved, loosening, snarkening, and darkening. These days, in large part to Ford's hellbent hollering, our boys occupy the sometimes salty, sometimes sweet spot smack dab in between rock and soul. They've toured with the likes of Bob Dylan and Queens of the Stone Age, which, one way or another, led them to Nashville in 2013 to record a 7'' vinyl single for our Blue Series. The result was one of the finest guitar explosions we've ever pressed on wax and a pivotal entry in their discography. Their latest effort, Gone Baby Gone, was recorded with QOTSA's Josh Homme producing, and their swampy new swagger fully realized. It's the work of band that, after all this time and effort, understands their place in the American rock scene.
The Dead Weather’s two new songs “Buzzkill(er)” and “It’s Just Too Bad” are now available to purchase worldwide on iTunes and all other digital retailers. Listen to a stream of "Buzzkill(er)" below.

Nashville's local, independent radio station, Lightning 100 has teamed up with local, independent beer brewery, Fat Bottom, to host a weekly DJ night, and they've asked yours truly to be a part of the inaugural event!
This Wednesday, join Ben Blackwell and Ben Swank while they spin rare gems and sweet sounds from their personal collections as well a few sneak peaks from yet-to-be-released (and yet-to-be-announced) records from the Third Man catalog. Oh, think of the secrets you'll be privy to! To sweeten the deal, the Rolling Record Store will be on site selling not only all the limited, exclusive merchandise you've come to expect, but also discounted Jack White tour merchandise, and (AND!) access to the FINAL REMAINING general admission tickets for Jack White's show this January at the Bridgestone Arena - they are sold out everywhere else, so this is a last chance opportunity.
Fat Bottom'll be slingin' small batch brews and beer drinkers will have the opportunity to spin a track or two of your own, and Lightning 100's Wells Adams manning the needle in between guests DJ's.
So, if you're one of those crazy people who doesn't like good music and good beer, steer clear of Fat Bottom brewery this Wednesday from 7-9pm. Otherwise, we'll see y'all there.
