Word comes to us this morning that those rock 'n' roll gurus over at Jack White's ever-photogenic Third Man Records will launch a "fun series of matinee recording sessions" this Friday, July 13. Doors for the show are at 11 a.m., and the bill will feature openers The People's Temple, plus a certain mysterious headliner. Actually, I know who the headliner is, but you guys know that being told something is "off the record" is basically like a magic spell against us journalists, right? It's the only thing that can shut us up. Anyway, TMR says they'll officially announce the headliner tomorrow, and that said headliner's "self-titled album that's recently out is one of [their] favorites this year on one of [their] favorite labels of every year." I concur. As you'll see in a me-penned writeup that will be out in this week's forthcoming dead-tree edition of the Scene, I too dig the record in question. TMR says this stuff:

This Friday, July 13th we'll be trying something new at Third Man and we'd love for EVERYONE to be here. Young and old... Let's call it a Rock n Roll lunch. An all ages matinee live rock n roll show here at Third Man Records. What could be better then some mid-afternoon psychedelia and rock music on a summers day?


Black and Blue versions of the headliner's live LP will be available to pre-order for those in attendance after the show from our record store, as will the split color 45 from The People's Temple. The standard black vinyl version will be available as soon as we can get them mixed pressed and on the shelves!

Doors at 11 a.m. with The People's Temple kicking off at noon. Tickets are $5 and available here. And because there's some construction going on near Third Man, you'll need to "enter the venue via Drexel at Room In The Inn."

Oh, and since we're talking TMR, the singles from Jack White's Blunderbuss are now available digitally worldwide, and if you're a Vault member, you're about to get your hands on a recording of The White Stripes' first-ever show.

Update: Duh, headliner is King Tuff.
