Last night, Light + Sound Machine, co-presented by Third Man Records and the Belcourt Theatre, screened Uganda's 1st action movie, Who Killed Captain Alex?, and the experience was a delight for all involved... even if they didn't make it out alive.
Director Nabwana I.G.G. and the cast made this wonderful introduction video specially for us to screen before the film began...
When the film was over, we had a Light + Sound Machine first: we became part of the action! We shot footage of our screening audience getting blown up to send back to Uganda for Nabwana to use in a future Wakaliwood production! We also had a live skype with Nabwana and his family, which was a true treat.
THANK YOU TO YOU, NABWANA, AND TO YOUR WAKALIWOOD FAMILY!
So, on the heels of such a fantastic night, it seems like a fantastic time to announce next month's Light + Sound Machine selection... A night dedicated to Stan Brakhage!
1955-1999 / sound & silent / 16mm / 88min trt
Thursday July 23rd / Doors 7pm, Show 8pm at Third Man Records
In the realm of experimental film, there is no name more iconic than Brakhage. During the second half of the 20th century, the visual kinetics of Stan Brakhage's work came to represent the household understanding of avant garde cinema. And yet, though he's often imitated, his films remain wholly unrivaled in their ability to anchor formal abstraction with personal biography and philosophical lyricism. This program, originally assembled in 2014 by Marilyn Brakhage and noted film preservationist Mark Toscano for the National Gallery of Art, spans 45 years of Brakhage's filmic exploration. Combining canonized work with overlooked gems, and covering an array of his techniques in sound and silent filmmaking, this event promises revelations for both newcomers and longtime admirers of Stan Brakhage.
While we know full well that the Fourth of July is about so much more, we're hard pressed to think of many things that register as more American than t-shirts and sales. Except maybe frisbees! No worries though, we've got those too along with a whole slew of Summer merchandise: adult and children's shirts, bandanas, travel mugs, water bottles, tote bags, shot glasses, toys for the furry fan in your life, and a few goodies exclusively for the Vault store! Select T-shirts throughout the store are also on sale for $15 from now through the weekend. Have at 'em, and happy Fourth, friends!
Danny Kroha (of the Gories, Demolition Doll Rods, etc) is hitting the road this Summer and quite possibly coming to a town near you!

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.
