Image Credit: Kevin Mazur/; Douglas Mason/Getty ImagesConan O’Brien stopped by his buddy Jack White’s Third Man Records in Nashville last night to play an impromptu rockabilly covers set. 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?
