Pokey LaFarge

Jack White, who has a new album on the way, will yet again attempt to break a world record. This time it's by recording the "World's Fastest Released Record." We'll let his label Third Man explain:

On April 19th, Record Store Day, Third Man Records will present Jack White recording the World's Fastest Released Record, studio-to-store, in the history of mankind.

You heard correctly. First thing in the morning, Jack White will take the stage in Third Man's blue room and record direct-to-acetate what will serve as the limited edition version of his next single, a live rendition of the title track from his upcoming LP Lazaretto. The masters will be rushed over to United Record Pressing who will immediately begin pressing 45s. The sleeves will be printed from pictures taken at the show. The finished records will be whisked back to Third Man to sell to awaiting fans. All in the same day. All in a matter of mere hours. As long as there are fans in line waiting to buy the single, United will continue to press and deliver them to Third Man to sell. Even if it takes all day.

Also at the Third Man store on RSD, Whirwind Heat will play their first show since 2006, and of course there will be tons of records and RSD exclusives on sale. Tickets for Vault members are available here, and more info on the event here. Flyer below.

Jack also plays NYC's Governors Ball, to which you can get individual day tickets starting today (4/4) at noon.

In related news, Third Man Records artist Pokey LaFarge has announced he'll be going on a tour this year. While many artists may look the part of an old timey folk musician, Pokey sounds it, with unpolished acoustic instrumentation that sounds decades-old and is far from trendy. On his relationship to Jack White, STL Today writes:

His connection with White has been fruitful. They met after White sought out LaFarge after hearing his music on an AM radio station in Nashville three years ago. He says White is attracted to "rough around the edges vocals and performances, stuff that's really vibrant, and roots-based music. He thought I was fitting for his label."
You can listen to tracks from his last self-titled album, which came out in 2013 via TMR, here and watch the video for its opening song, "Central Time," below.

Pokey's tour hits NYC on July 9 at Bowery Ballroom with Sturgill Simpson. Tickets for that show go on sale today (4/4) at noon.

All of his dates are listed, with the song streams and Jack White flyer, below...

bad news for jack white fans tonight - he was just spotted outside the Barclays Center looking for a jay-z ticket. - DFA Records

I don't know who had the rights to Radio City Music Hall but I'm pretty sure Jack White owns it now. #2ndnightsuccess - Carson_Kelly

Jack White played everything at double or triple speed, with a lot of anger, and it was awesome. - BuzzFeed

Jack White

Lucky for Jack White Sunday night ticket-holders, the above tweet by DFA Records was untrue, and the White Stripes/Raconteurs/Dead Weather/Third Man honcho also played a much longer show than he did on Saturday when he strangely played a super short one.

Here are some pictures from the short Saturday NYC show, and the longer setlist from Sunday at Radio City. It all continues below...
