• Light + Sound Machine Presents... The Devil's Cleavage

    January's Light + Sound Machine, co-presented with the Belcourt Theater features George Kuchar's HOLD ME WHILE I'M NAKED, followed by THE DEVIL'S CLEAVAGE. Both will be screened on 16mm film. Tickets are available now for $10 for the Janary 16th event.

    THE DEVIL'S CLEAVAGE d. George Kucher, USA 1973, black and white, 107 min.

    "George Kuchar's lovingly farcical re-creation of those (Forties and Fifties) melodramas, THE DEVIL'S CLEAVAGE, is a camp parody that sometimes directly steals from the genre, sometimes burlesques it, and often travesties it. As you might expect, it soon begins to mock all kinds of cinematic references, from Hitchcock to Preminger. But leave the exact details to pedants, laughter's the thing here . Kuchar manages terribly well in terms of imagination and inventiveness, and just plain terribly in terms of such humdrum details of filming as using a light meter and tape recorder. Technical ineptness aside, we end up with a marvelous hybrid, as if Sam Fuller and Sternberg had collaborated in shooting a script by Tennessee Williams and Russ Meyer. Which is to say that excess is the most basic element of Kuchar's method, even when (almost paradoxically) it's an excess of cliche ('Such language! Bite your tongue!' 'Bite it for me!) Douglas Sirk tells us, 'Cinema is blood, tears, violence, hate, death, and love.' Kuchar reminds us that cinema, like life, is also bedpans, earwax, sleazy fantasy, ineptness, compromise, and laughter." -- Chuck Kleinhans, Film Center program

  • Rory Scovel Live at Third Man Records

    A few months back we hosted one of our favorite comedians in the Third Man Blue Room, hand selected by Jack White to appear. Rory Scovel came, saw and destroyed any and all bad vibes within a 5 mile radius with an improv set of some of the best live stand up we've seen in years. Seriously, the man far exceeded even our lofty expectations for hilarity. Since then Rory has had a bumper few months, appearing on Conan O' Brien in a tuxedo performing uber-classy comedy with live LIberace-style piano accompaniment, co-starring on new TBS comedy Ground Floor and generally ruling the school and jettisoning jocularity into the universe in every town and festival he visits on tour.

    Well if you missed his now legendary Third Man live show, fear not and save your tears, it is now available on LP and available in finer record retailers everywhere (just in time for the Stand Up fan in your life for Christmas).

    Oh, and one last thing for our UNUSUAL FORMAT collectors and fans… The sleeves and labels feature the track list all in braille. That's right. Braille. Trust us, it'll all make sense when you hear the album. It's another meta-comedy first from Third Man Records and Rory Scovel!

    AVAILABLE NOW!

    We are also offering a Live Comedy Bundle, featuring Rory's Scovel's above mentioned 12" as well as the Live stand-up LP's from Neil Hamburger and Reggie Watts.

  • Store Closed Friday from 12pm- 1pm

    Our Nashville store will be closed for one hour beginning at noon this Friday, December 20th. Please schedule your visit accordingly.
