Sad but true, Sunday will be the final day of our BLUEPRINTS Paramount Records focused pop-up shop in Austin, TX. We have loved our temporary second home in Billy Reid's storefront, and it's been our pleasure to stretch our eagle wings into the Lone Star State. To go out with a bit of a bang, we'll have a handful of limited edition records available each day from tomorrow to Sunday.
- THURSDAY The Dead Weather Live Black & Blue LP (never commercially available outside of the Vault) + The Dough Rollers “Little Lily” tricolor 7"
- FRIDAY Quintron & Miss Pussycat Live Black & Blue LP and The White Stripes “Lord, Send Me An Angel” tricolor 7"
- SATURDAY The Great Gatsby Soundtrack Limited Edition Gold and Platinum Double LP (first commercially available metallized records ever!) and Karen Elson “Milk & Honey” 7" on Honey Yellow vinyl
- SUNDAY Flat Duo Jets split-color Go Go Harlem Baby LP and Jack White “Would You Fight For My Love?” tricolor 7"
We will be doing our drawing for the winner of Volume 1 of The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records on Sunday as well, so if you haven't stopped in the store, entering the drawing now adds to the list of reasons why you should.
The rest of the reasons? Well, we don't know... How about Third Man Records vinyl, merchandise and novelties (zippos! shot glasses! guitar straps and picks!)? How about spending time immersing yourself in the catalog of Paramount Records, which boasts one of the greatest musical rosters ever assembled under one roof? Maybe even taking one home to explore on your own... you'll be an expert on American music in no time. How about taking a load off and kicking back with a pair of headphones and some of our best releases? We could go on...
Either way, we look forward to seeing you in our final days in Austin. Blueprints is located at 1122 West 6th Street in Billy Reid’s gallery space, and is open from 10 - 7 Thursday through Saturday and 12 - 6 on Sunday.
