We know many of you have been chomping at the bit for the Born Rotten 45 Box we introduced on Devil’s Night, and we’re feeling a little less naughty and a little more nice than we were back in October, so have at it! We’re also introducing a new Jack White Lazaretto 45 box. As you know, we are primarily a 7” label, and we believe our 45’s deserve good homes once they leave Third Man Headquarters…
We’ve got you covered on stocking stuffers as well. Instead of smiley faces and gold stars, reward your kid with Third Man Sticker Sheets! Light a fire under his/her ass with a Third Man Zippo! Find the key to happiness and keep it on a Third Man Keychain! Or, if you want to pull out the big guns this holiday season, there is only one gift that fits every bill, that satisfies every sense, and that promises to knock any recipient off his/her feet…
It’s our most elaborate, our most decadent, our most stunning box set yet. Heck, it might be the most elaborate, decadent and stunning box set ever made. We pity the fool who tries to top it in beauty, scope or relevance. This 6 LP set (180 gram, alabaster vinyl, no less) with 800 newly-remastered digital tracks contains the very bedrock of American music. Complete with a 250 page clothbound, hardcover book, a 400 page field guide, and 90+ original Paramount ads, and the most jaw dropping package we could dream up, it’s a library you can carry, it’s expertise with a handle, it’s months of exploration and discovery, it’s a treasure trove with an art deco sensibility, it’s a jealousy provoking, multi-media, curvy, shiny, packed-to-the-brim, we-aren’t-even-telling-you-all-the-good-stuff, opportunity to become an EXPERT. It puts your other Christmas present ideas to shame, and you know it. Get it HERE.

Directed by Manfred Kirchheimer - 1981 - USA - 80min - Color - Digital
The earliest filmed document of graffiti, Manfred Kirchheimer’s richly chromatic 16mm city symphony sets images of northern Manhattan to a soundtrack that interweaves ambient city noises with the gutbucket gospel squall of jazz titan Charles Mingus. Long regarded by cinephiles and hip-hop heads as an obscure cult masterpiece since it premiered at the 1981 New York Film Festival, Stations of the Elevated is a celebration of a quintessentially urban art form—at a time when it was largely dismissed as vandalism. This priceless portrait of a bygone era of New York City culture comes to Nashville after its sold-out screening at this year’s BAMcinemaFest.
Preceded by Kirchheimer’s short film Claw, a poetic, deeply critical examination of urban renewal.
All member and non-member tickets will be available via will call, day-of-film, at Third Man beginning at 7pm.
