We always love a good record release show, and this month's party with Spider Bags at The Pinhook was made even more special as the band performed their Merge debut Frozen Letter in its entirety. There's no better way to get to know Dan McGee & the guys than a show in a packed club on a Friday night. Watch the set below.
