Earlier this year, Third Man relaunched its public access channel, Third Man Public Access, on its YouTube channel as an at-home concert series. The series has released five episodes so far, with the latest instalment premiering in late June, and has featured Tenacious D, J Mascis and Thurston Moore, among other artists.
“We’re attempting to capture the lunacy and creativity of this incredibly unique time and present it through an early MTV meets late-night UHF psychedelic experience. Join us, while we laugh through the tears in the rain… Fuck Trump,” Third Man co-founder Ben Swank said in a statement.
