Jack White's Third Man Records to pop up in L.A.

August 20, 2009 |  1:08 pm

For those who can’t schlep to Nashville to rummage through the recordings  that Jack White has been putting out since opening his Third Man Records studio and store in the country music capital in March, he’s Jack_white_getty__ arranging a brief opportunity to shop here in L.A.

Third Man will set up a pop-up store for three days, starting Wednesday, near 4th and Main streets downtown.  The shop, to be called Third Man Records and Novelties West, will be stocked with copies of the Dead Weather’s debut album, “Horehound,” as well as releases from the White Stripes, the Raconteurs and other acts that have recorded for the nascent label. There'll be T-shirts and other merchandise as well.

The pop-up store will be at 448 S. Main St., and it'll be open Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.,  and Thursday and Friday from noon to 8 p.m. Given that the store will turn up while the Dead Weather is in town for a few performances -- Tuesday at the Wiltern, Wednesday at the Mayan and Friday on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" -- fans might reasonably be on guard for a drop-in by White or any of his three new band mates: singer Alison Mosshart, guitarist Dean Fertita or bassist Jack Lawrence.
