Third Man Pressing, the new vinyl record pressing plant at Third Man Records in Detroit's Cass Corridor, will celebrate its grand opening on Feb. 25 with live performances and special releases.

The 10,000-square-foot plant -- the first to feature brand new pressing machines in the U.S. in 35 years -- opens to the public at 10 .m. that day with live performances starting at 2:30 p.m. by the Memphis groups the Mummies! and the Oblivians and Detroit's Craig Brown Band, which releases an album on April 14.

Third Man Records will also roll out eight special releases pressed in the new plant -- yellow vinyl editions of the Stooges' debut album and the MC5's "Kick Out The Jams," an opaque vinyl version of the White Stripes' self-titled debut album and a red vinyl edition of its follow-up, "De Stijl," the Johnson Family Singers' "Don't Let The Devil Ride," a split project by Destroy All Monsters and Xanadu, and 7-inch singles by Detroit electronic artists Derrick and Carl Craig.

A limited edition grand opening poster designed by Rob Jones will also be available.

Tours of the plan will be offered from 1-4 p.m. Tour tickets can be pre-purchased at thirdmanstore.com. More information about the grand opening is available at the site or by calling 313-209-5205.
