With the White Stripes over, the Dead Weather not touring, and the members of The Raconteurs busy with their own side projects, you can’t blame Jack White for looking to line his pockets with a little extra cash. The musician and owner of Third Man Records will be featured on tonight’s new episode of American Pickers. The History Channel’s TV series, which follows duo Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz cross the US in search of antiques and collectibles, brings them to Nashville, where White offers up a slew of personal artifacts and rock’n’roll relics.
Besides the appeal of getting a peek at the Third Man Records’ HQ (although the office is hands-down the coolest space we’ve ever seen, they usually have a strict no-photo policy) and seeing memorabilia like the actual photo booth used in the Dead Weather’s “Hang You From the Heavens” music video up close, there’s the fact that you’ll get to watch Jack White bargaining. Could he have picked up a trick or two from his ex-wife, and owner of the recently shuttered vintage store Venus and Mars, Karen Elson?
To find out, tune in tonight at 9 PM.
