Jack White Opens “Novelties Lounge” Store
Jack White's Third Man Records is opening its very own "novelties lounge" inside its Nashville headquarters. The space includes an expanded record shop and various retro fun.
The store includes: “a Scopitone machine ( an old-timey juxebox for music videos) that plays Third Man videos. There's something called a Mold-a-Rama, which pumps out special shapes made from wax (in this case, replicas of Jack White's signature guitar). There's also a full-color photo booth. Everything in the lounge is coin-operated... using special Third Man coins.”
The lounge's opening takes place Friday 23 November. On that day, Third Man Records will also release 100 tri-color 45s of Jack White's "I'm Shakin'" single, as well as a new single by the "world's oldest burlesque dancer" Tempest Storm.
The store will also sell White Stripes merchandise on “Black Friday,” including a trio of limited-edition opaque red vinyl singles from the White Stripes’ White Blood Cells: "Dead Leaves on the Dirty Ground" b/w "Stop Breaking Down", "Hotel Yorba" b/w 'Rated X", and "Fell in Love With a Girl" b/w "I Just Don't Know What to Do With Myself".
