Earlier this month, Jack White leaked the news that his next Third Man Records pop-up shop would be, um, popping up in Austin, Texas for SXSW. The where/when/how/etc. were still unknown, however, until today. Third Man Records has announced that their “most ambitious temporary store” to date will set up shop at Austin’s Frank Restaurant and Grocery on 407 Colorado St from March 17 – 20, 12-8pm.
As with Third Man’s previous stints in Los Angeles, London, and New York City, there will be a slew of items available for purchase exclusively at this one-time event. One item, in particular, caught my eye: a reissue of 1980s band Jon Wayne’s out-of-print cult classic album Texas Funeral, which will debut Third Man’s forthcoming reissue series.
Other notable exclusive merch includes 150 handmade wooden boxes “containing the complete Texas Sized Vinyl set of 45s,” a Third Man Branding Station (“you bring it down, we’ll brand it with the Third Man logo”), and more.
