Video: Watch the Spider Bags play Frozen Letter in its entirety

Posted by and on Wed, Aug 20, 2014 at 10:13 AM

On August 8, Spider Bags hit The Pinhook stage for a two-set show celebrating the release of their debut Merge debut LP, Frozen Letter. Though the band played one of Duke’s Music in the Gardens shows earlier in the summer, it’s the late-night, not-so-family-friendly club shows that tend to display Spider Bags at their mightiest.

Set number one featured the outfit—which included Carrboro's Clarque Blomquist as a guest guitarist and fourth member—playing straight through Frozen Letter. They followed with a set of their greatest hits—“Simona La Ramona,” “Keys to the City” and, of course, “Papa Was a Shithead"—and some misses. While the band seems to be working through the live kinks of Frozen Letter, the songs still boasted the band’s signature boisterous live energy.

Dan Schram captured the first set in its entirety, which you can relive below.
