It’s hard to believe that’s it’s now been a decade since Jack White’s Third Man Records first opened its iconic Nashville storefront, firmly engraining the beloved rock star and his label in new Nashville’s flourishing music scene. Since ’09, Third Man, which features recording space, a performance venue, and a store front, and has severed as a boutique label for all kinds of national and local artists with new releases, live recordings, reissues, and more, has undeniably become a local institution, so, to celebrate its 10th anniversary and the community of artists who’ve been apart of Third Man along the way, the label has announced one seriously cool and fitting anniversary party, set to take place April 6.
The biggest news is that The Raconteurs, Jack White’s first post-White Stripes supergroup, are set to headline, marking their first proper live show in eight years. The rest of the lineup is top-notch as well, with performances from Lillie Mae, The Gories, Detroit Cobras, Quintron & Miss Pussycat, The Dirtbombs, Soledad Brothers, Craig Brown Band, Todd Albright, and Teddy & The Rough Riders, with DJ sets by Margo Price, Alison Mosshart, Joshua Hedley, Carla Azar, Dave Buick, and more!
While the Raconteurs have been teasing new music off and on for years, sometimes with the prospect of a return looking less likely (White has since had a massive solo career, and also juggles time with other side project The Dead Weather), and even reunited for two surprise songs during White’s 2015 appearance at Bridgestone Arena, they finally dropped two new singles and accompanying videos, “Sunday Driver” and “Now That You’re Gone,” concurrent to a deluxe reissue of their sophomore LP Consolers of the Lonely back in December, with a long-awaited third full-length finally expected to arrive in 2019.
