Spiral Stairs of Pavement played Bell House & Mercury Lounge (pics, setlists)

Former Pavement guitarist Spiral Stairs is currently on tour supporting his very good new solo album Doris and The Daggers. He was in NYC over the weekend, playing The Bell House on Friday (6/23) and Mercury Lounge on Saturday (6/24). At both shows, he treated folks to a wide cross section of songs from throughout his career, including a bunch of Pavement songs (“Two States,” “Hit the Plane Down,” “Date with IKEA”), songs from his Preston School of Industry days, selections from the new album, and at the Bell House he opened with a cover of Roxy Music’s “Flesh and Blood.”

You can check out setlists from both NYC shows below, and we’ve got pictures from Spiral’s set at Mercury Lounge in the gallery above (we missed Grooms and Lazyeyes unfortunately).
