Daru Jones is Jack White's drummer. Daru Jones is amazing. Daru Jones' take-no-prisoners approach to the drums has gained him world wide acclaim and many admirers. Are you one of them? If so, we have a treat for you! Daru was featured on the cover of Modern Drummer this month, and he will park it at Third Man Records for a meet and greet, armed with a handful of copies of this issue to send some lucky ducks home with, and, if you're REALLY lucky, you might even be gifted a pair of Daru's personal Pro-mark signature drum sticks - sticks that ONLY Daru has! Feel free to bring your own copy of the magazine as well, and Daru Jones will be sure to enhance it with his John Hancock!
So, Sunday, stop by Third Man's Nashville storefront between 3-5 to say hello to the backbone of the band, the one, the only... Daru Jones!
Fucked Up Live at Third Man Records - Matinee Show
July 5th, 2015
Doors/Patio Grill Out at 5pm / Show at 6pm
ALL AGES / $10
We’re freaking out over here. Feverish isn’t even the right word for it. Perhaps we’re just, oh I don’t know, DELIGHTED to announce that Fucked Up is back on the road and their Zodiac Series tour is making its way to Nashville all the way from Toronto, the provincial capital of Ontario, Canada. What better way to celebrate a new release? What do you mean “which new release”? Why, Year of The Hare (on Deathwish Inc.) is the seventh 12’’ single in Fucked Up’s Zodiac series! It’s an ongoing patchwork of epic and explosive songcraft and FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY they’ll be playing selections from the series at random. All recorded direct-to-acetate. They’ll be bringing Doom Squad along for the ride to open up the show here at TMR. It’s one of the most ambitious and sprawling bills ever to grace the Blue Room stage.
Fucked Up is a rare band. They’re a mutant strain of post-hardcore, arena-punk, super-talents capable of reworking the strange and the beautiful into a cohesive whole, but not at the expense of their furious underpinnings that keeps the band in constant motion. They are truly a blitzkrieg of song and lyric. It’s gonna be a frenzy. Thanks, Canada!
This is an ALL AGES matinee show. Doors open at 5pm and the show starts at 6pm. Why? So, we can enjoy two awesome bands and then (cherry on top) go see the fucking MELVINS over at Exit/IN! We go hard. Join us.
The Blue Room Spotlight Series is a collaboration with Red Digital Cinema Camera Company that features visually arresting, intimate performances in our Blue Room venue, shot by in-house film and video guru Brad Holland on RED cameras, and posted in 4K resolution. The Blue Room Spotlight Series features a variety of artists either local to Nashville or passing through town... They could be TMR recording stars or just artists we admire and respect. All genres of the musical spectrum will be represented, and artists are encouraged to re-interpret their material in ways that fans previously haven’t heard. Anything goes, and we'll be there to capture it.
Death From Above 1979 Live at Third Man Records
July 16th, 2015
Doors/Patio Grill Out at 7pm / Show at 8pm
18+ / $10
Jesse Keeler and Sebastien Grainger are international men of mystery (they're from Canada) who dip their toes into whatever damn waters they please (MSTRKRFT, Deserts/Bad Tits, Femme Fatale, The Mountains, Black Cat No.13), and who know how to pen a song that'll get you off your ass and make you feel things. That's all we really want in a song... how about you? A decade after a sudden break up (following the release of their rich and gritty first record You're A Woman, I'm a Machine, tours with Nine Inch Nails and QOTSA, and one foot in the door of the mainstream) Death From Above 1979 reunited and released their second LP The Physical World last Fall. The duo has picked right up where they left off and are hitting the road this Summer. Amidst their resurgence in which they claim their rightful place among Bands Who Are Worth A Damn And Will Prove It To You, DFA 1979 are swinging through Nashville prepared to record direct-to-acetate in the Third Man Records Blue Room with ten years of lost time to recover and a fresh perspective. We can't wait to see it, cut it, and share it with the world.
The show will take place July 16th. Tickets are on sale NOW.
Hometown hero Mike Floss (previously known as Openmic) will grace our Blue Room next week for a performance/live taping for our live series. Tickets are FREE, so availability is first come, first served starting at 7pm. Fellow Nashvillian Shmuck the Loyal will open, and the first round of drinks (for those over 21, of course) is on US, so come on by, start your Friday night off right with good music and a cold one courtesy of your friendly, neighborhood record label.
