We would like to officially announce what we feel is one of the most beautiful and unique limited edition pieces of vinyl we’ve yet produced here at Third Man… The Jack White Blunderbuss Lightning Bolt Vinyl. Perfect in it’s simplicity, a regular black LP with a brilliant flash of blue vinyl running throughout, these LPs are some of the most striking and interesting records we have made due to the variations produced in each individual record. Every single record is, in it’s way, one of a kind.
In our ongoing quest to explore new and innovative distribution techniques, the Lightning Bolt Vinyl will only be available via the Third Man Rolling Record Store at Jack’s live dates and other RRS apperances throughout the summer, while supplies last. We will limit the amount of Lightning Bolts sold at each location to 20 in order to more effectively spread these to different territories around the United States. They will remain on sale from the Rolling Record Store as long as supplies last.
Starting with Jack’s upcoming tour beginning on May 15th, The Rolling Record Store will be at many locations around the States this summer. Here is a look at the next batch of appearances. Many more dates to be announced very soon.
May 12 – Secret Stages Festival, Birmingham Alabama
May 15 & 16 – Third Man Records – Jack White tour launch and summer sale (more on that below!)
May 18 – 20 – Hangout Fest, Gulf Shores Alabama
May 21 – End Of All Music, Oxford Mississippi
May 22 – Vintage Vinyl, St. Louis Missouri
May 24 – Scottish Rite Theatre, Detroit MI
And now, about that sale mentioned above! We’d like to send Jack off in style for his Blunderbuss tour with a little tailgate party here at Third Man Records on the dates of his Ryman shows. And by “party” we mean “sale”. But a FUN sale with lots of great stuff. The Rolling Record Store and some local food trucks will be parked in the lot, while in our Blue Room we’ll have tables upon tables of White Stripes, Raconteurs and Dead Weather merchandise.. all at a great discounted price. Everything from a wide assortment of T Shirts, to tiny red theramins, to buttons, bags and lots lots more. We hope any fans travelling to Nashville for what is sure to be two legendary nights at The Ryman will join us from 3pm to 7pm on May 15th and 16th.
Finally, thanks to the fans in Portugal for making Blunderbuss #1!
