Conan O'Brien jams with Jack White in Nashville

An audience of just 300 people, who had been alerted by a tweet and a YouTube clip the night before, crowded into the label headquarters to see O’Brien rock out on guitar and vocals, joined by his own band and occasionally White. The Associated Press, the New York Times, and have more on the set, which included covers of songs by Elvis Presley, the Stray Cats, Willie Nelson, Eddie Cochran, and Radiohead. Conan changed some of the songs’ lyrics for comedic effect and told a few jokes; top hats were worn. All in all, sounds very fun and pretty funny to boot.

TeamCoco says the show “is going to be pressed into a record that people at the show could buy.” We’ll update you as soon as we get some more solid information on that release plan. (UPDATE: Third Man has announced that a live album recorded at the show will be released on vinyl “VERY SOON.” Preorders can be placed online.) For now, check out a clip of Jack White introducing O’Brien (via the NYT) after the jump. Were any of you lucky enough to be there at Third Man? Would you buy this live album if it ever comes out?

    I was there. They let 300 people in and I was number 297. It was a great show.

    I was with the hundreds that couldn’t make it inside for the show, but Conan was nice enough to meet and sign autographs for all of us who missed out.

    They actually let more than 300 people in. I was #302 and the group behind me got in too. When I was waiting at the entrance to see if I could get in, they were talking about letting 315-320 in. Any show that is held at Third Man Records is recorded and then released as a limited edition album. Usually you have to attend the show to be able to purchase the album. However, since so many people did not get in I think they made an exception and sold it to anyone who wanted to buy it.

    You had to buy the LP last night after the show to get one. Part of Third Man Records Black and Blue offering. They only press the # of records purchased last nigHt. I was lucky to get one ordered.

  • Lara

    If they released it to the masses, hell yes, I’d buy it.

      The standard black vinyl is up for preorder on the Third Man Records website. They expect it to ship around the end of July. Already ordered my copy. Conan has a spoken word 7″ coming out on Third Man Records too, but there aren’t too many details on it.

    Conan O’Brien is a real jerk. He handled that late night fiasco terribly. It was the network’s fault, not Jay Leno’s, who is ten times better as a comedian and as a man. Conan acted like a spoiled brat and got too much money for it. I’ll never watch his show.
