The band that brought the world Perennial Favorites, "Hot," "Bedlam Ballroom," and "The Inevitable" are back to play together for the first time since touring behind Bedlam Ballroom in 2000. Featuring the same line up that last recorded and toured together, the Squirrel Nut Zippers - with original and founding members Katherine Whalen, Jimbo Mathus, Chris Phillips, Je Widenhouse and Stuart Cole - have plans to perform together and possibly more.
Performing songs from the entire catalogue, the band still rejoices at the difficulty people have in pigeonholing their unmistakable sound. A perpetually evolving, hybrid-stew of Southern roots traditions, the Zippers were aptly tagged "'30s punk" by one critic, and have always flirted with a muse most concerned with ghosts, love gone wrong, fever-dreams, and the razor's edge of sexual desire. Centered around the beguiling vocals of Katherine Whalen and the anachronistic windup toy that is Jimbo Mathus, the Zippers promise to both charm and confound.
