Olivia Wyatt is a film maker and photographer based in Rockaway Beach, NY. On the 23rd we'll be presenting two of her films that have been released by the fantastic record label and collective, Sublime Frequencies. We are insanely excited to present the only Nashville screening of these modern day ethno-folk cinema classics. In Staring Into The Sun Olivia explores 13 different tribes throughout Ethiopia and takes in Zar spirit possession, Hamer tribal wedding ceremonies; wild hyena feedings and more in a blend of ethereal images, landscapes and sounds from the horn of Africa. The Pierced Heart And The Machete is a film exploring two Haitian Vodou religious pilgrimages that take place each year in mid-July. Both of these culturally and musically rich films are exactly the sort of front line and important sort of presentations that mean so much to us at Third Man. Really excited to have this screening at Third Man, the filmmaker, Olivia Wyatt, will be in attendance. Purchase tickets.
The dog Hisself joins us at Third Man for a rare Stateside live appearance. We're really pleased to have our old pal Steve back to Nashville to play a live show for us and the fans. Nobody, but nobody, rocks a Diddley Bow like Seasick Steve. This is a don't miss appearance from one of the greatest showmen and one of our personal favorite guys out there preachin the blues every day.
Promised Land is a new-ish band from Nashville that mine the best from the Burritos and The Band and we know everyone is gonna love em.
Seasick Steve will all be recorded direct to acetate for a Live At Third Man LP, and Promised Land will be recorded for a live 45. Limited Edition Black & Blue split color vinyl Pre-Sales will be available for attendees only after each the show.Purchase tickets.
We wanted to get this recap and gallery of pics from the Kills live show / recording up to you sooner, but the truth is... There simply isn't words to describe it.
All of us here feel this was hands down one of the greatest shows we've had pass through our doors.. We can't thank The Kills, The Black Rooster Drum Corp, and Two Tears enough for coming by and doing this show for us and you, the fans. It was a really special evening.
Our vinyl wagon and mobile fun zone, The Rolling Record Store, is hitting the road again next week on it's way to New York City for the annual CMJ Festival. We'll have some limited edition items along for the ride, which we'll spread out among the different stops and all of the usual Rolling Record Store merchandise and records. As always the best way to hear about what is being offered from the Rolling Record Store and where is to follow it on Twitter, where the Rolling Record Store team will post daily updates with what they have available for that day... You can find us here: @ThirdManRRS.
But hopefully the mere mention of Public Nuisance White Wall Triple Deckers, Jack White 'I'm Shakin' (free) posters, Rome Limited Edish LPs, and more rare TMR vinyl is enough to wet your record buying appetites...

This past Saturday was a fantastic and historical day here at Third Man with The Shins visiting us and playing an intimate show for some hardcore fans that was recorded directly to acetate disc in our new vinyl mastering suite connected to our venue. A great big thanks to George Ingram from Nashville Record Production and Vance Powell and their crews for helping us make this dream happen on Saturday night by producing and running the machines and making sure it all ran like clockwork. And of course a thank you to The Shins and their whole crew for being such great sports and making the show as easy and as fun as it possibly could have been. They were the perfect band to help us launch this cool new system of recording live music, and Low Cut Connie weren't half bad either!
So, we are insanely over the moon excited to have The Kills coming up live this Wednesday, and again this live show will be recorded direct to acetate. Looking forward to having you all here for that (sold out) show. We'll get things started a little early on Wednesday with hot dog and burgers (with veggie options) for sale on our patio from 6:30 to 8:30. Doors for the show are at 7 and this show is 16 and up.
Again, we'll be taking pre-sales for Black and Blue split colored vinyl after the show for those in attendance. Please be sure to ask any of the helpful Third Man employees at the show if you've never joined us for a show before and aren't sure how this all works to get that vinyl! Oh, and we'll also have screen printed posters for the event available as well, designed in house by Julian Baker.
And last but most certainly not least... we don't want to forget to thank all the hard working guys and gals who have been here with us doing the actual construction on our new building, alleyway entrance, patio, and mastering studio over the past few months and helped make all of this possible. These guys all worked really hard and spared no detail and we're really indebted to their tireless work ethic and great attitudes. So please join us in a round of applause for our head contractors over at Sound Construction Inc and their team of folks listed below:
Sound Construction Inc, Don Davis Construction, 12 Street Painting, REI Concrete, John Guess Alarm, Rio Grande Fence Co, Russell Hall Plumbing, Russell Glass Company, Nashville Tent & Awning, DHC Air Conditioning, All American Hardware, Crawford Door Company, Nashville Fabricators, JKL Electric Company, American Flooring Epoxy Flooring, and Music City Masonry.
Cheers everyone... see you Wednesday!
