Published Apr 21, 2020Last month, Third Man Records launched its online Third Man Public Access series, showcasing artists through live performances at the label's Nashville headquarters. With social distancing proving even more important in combating coronavirus, Jack White's label has now relaunched the feature with an "at-home" edition.
The latest hour-long episode, which you can find below, features performances from Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis and his son Rory, in addition to Melvins drummer Dale Crover, His Name Is Alive, Kelley Stoltz, Redd Kross and more. Performance footage of the White Stripes and Mike Watt and the Missingmen is also included.
"We're attempting to capture the lunacy and creativity of this incredibly unique time and present it through an early MTV meets late-night UHF psychedelic experience. Join us, while we laugh through the tears in the rain… Fuck Trump," Third Man co-founder Ben Swank said.
New episodes will arrive on Third Man's Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube pages in the coming weeks.
Mascis paid tribute to frontline workers in Italy from isolation last month. In late 2019, Dinosaur Jr. hit the studio to work on a follow-up to 2016's Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not.
As previously reported, Third Man Records will reissue two Redd Kross albums this year.
