Building since 2009, SpiderFriends began as a side-project duo featuring singer/guitarist Parker Donaldson and drummer Peter Wierenga. (Ah ha! Peter + Parker = Spiderman reference.) Growing in stature and size very quickly, the band emerged earlier this year with the brilliant full-length Dr. Bendo and the Agents of Alchemy, showcasing its new, beefier identity as a powerhouse Rockadelic quintet.
