Third Man Records is no stranger to hosting musicians, as they often have shows there. Right now with the Coronavirus outbreak they've had to stop with the gatherings of people, but for many musicians missing out on gigs means missing out on paychecks, so Third Man came up with an innovative way to help musicians out.

Every day at noon, they will has a musician in their blue room. They'll live stream the entire performance on their YouTube channel while sharing the artist's Venmo or Paypal. This way if you're stuck at home you can enjoy some great entertainment, and if you are able, you can tip the musician a few bucks. I think this is a really great way to help each other out.

Third Man Records has announced Third Man Public Access, a series of daily live-streamed performances to take place from their famed Blue Room in their Nashville headquarters. Tune in today and every day at 12pm CT. Performances begin today with a set from new age pedal steel player Luke Schneider. Be sure to check Third Man's InstagramTwitter and Facebook pages for daily performance information, with a full schedule to be rolled out soon.

Third Man Records has always believed that great things come out of restrictions. Artists being restricted from their audiences though? We’re not sure what greatness can come from that. Third Man has a big empty blue room, cameras, internet access, and TONS of talented friends and family who are out of work, so they're putting this all to use starting today at 12pm CT.

Head to the Third Man Records Youtube channel today and every day at 12pm CT for the foreseeable future to watch and hear Third Man's favorite artists sharing whatever is inspiring them during this impossibly dystopian moment in time. Let us commiserate with you, lift your spirits, and feed your soul with the magic that only “live” music / poetry / puppet shows / some sort of human connection can provide.

Please be assured that they will have fewer than 10 people in the Blue Room (and at TMR HQ in general), and everyone is staying more than 6 ft apart. Third Man will be including Venmo and Paypal handles for you to tip your entertainers — please give what you can.
