THIRD MAN LIVE
February 02 2010
Third Man Records is proud to announce an innovative and new twist to the live music experience. On February 4th we will launch Third Man Live, an ongoing series of all-ages, live concerts that are performed, recorded and sold on exclusive vinyl right here at Third Man Records as well as being made available via pay-per-view from the Third Man Vault website.
Beginning with the live performance from the Dex Romweber Duo on Thursday, Feb. 4th, concerts in our Third Man venue will be recorded direct to 8-track analog reel-to-reel tape for the purpose of producing a live album. Our stage will be one of the only venues in the world (the only?) to offer the chance for acts to play live in front of a crowd and record to analog tape, let alone for that concert to be available on vinyl within weeks!
The analog recording booth was personally designed by Jack White and also contains turntables for guest DJ's to spin records before and after performances. Teenagers who cannot attend 21-and-over concerts by touring bands coming through Nashville will now have an opportunity to see some of those acts earlier in the day and many times for free!
Attendees to the shows will have the opportunity to purchase a limited-edition, split-colored vinyl LP of the concert; half-black, half-blue, hereby to be referred to as our Black & Blue records. Three-hundred copies of this version will be pressed and will only be made available to those in attendance. Black vinyl pressings of the live album will be available in the Third Man shop thereafter. Neither version of the record will be distributed to other retailers or be made available online. Further details on how to purchase your record will be revealed at the concert.
For those unable to attend in person, concerts will often be filmed and available as a pay-per-view concert through our online subscription service, The Vault. The night of the concert we will stream one song from the concert itself for free and the entire concert will be available as a pay-per-view download at a later date. Details and instructions will be posted on The Vault near
the time of the show.
1. Third Man Live launches February 4th with a free, all-ages show from the Dex Romweber Duo
2. An exclusive Black & Blue LP of each show will be available only to concert attendees. Black & Blues will cost $20. Fans will be notified via our the Third Man website when these LP's are available to pick up from our store.
3. Standard black vinyl copies of each live show will be available for sale at Third Man Records only. These LPs will cost $12.
4. Concerts will be filmed on a multi-camera format and available as a pay-per-view via the Third Man Records Vault. The Dex Romweber Duo pay-per-view is being offered at an introductory rate of $3. As a bonus to fans of the acts coming through, pay-per-view concerts will be open to everyone and not just Vault members. Some shows may be time-delayed in order to accommodate high viewer traffic.
We are very excited about beginning this new venture and look forward
to seeing you all here at Third Man very soon.
