Iron and Wine's Trapeze Swinger (Camels With Hammers Blogathon Insomniac Theater)

I used to have an overnight job on Saturday nights when I was in college where my job was to periodically walk around a rec room and sign in all the people who were there. It was a pretty easy job but I understandably got pretty bleary staying up until 6am. I wound up though with warm memories of watching music videos as part of VH1′s overnight music video marathon, “Insomniac Theater”. When I did my first blogathon and got exhausted and desperate in the hours of the night at which no one should have to be awake, I nostalgically felt like posting some of my favorite music videos as a tribute to Insomniac Theater and as a consolation for other sleep deprived souls reading the blog in the middle of the night.

For this blogathon it only seems right to make this a tradition and spend the last couple hours before the dawn comes up featuring cool music videos.

This is Iron and Wine playing “Trapeze Swinger” on my birthday last year, just days before I saw them live myself at Radio City Music Hall. This was the encore at that show too, and it was rousing.

“Trapeze Swinger” is on the Iron and Wine B-sides and rarities collection Around the Well.
