Golden State Theatre presents the Squirrel Nut Zippers' Christmas Caravan Tour along with special guest Christopher Wonder on Friday, Decmber 9 at 8pm. Tickets are $27-$62. For more information and to purchase tickets, please click here.

The Squirrel Nut Zippers began their musical journey in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in the mid 1990s as a musician's escape from the cookie cutter world of contemporary rock radio. Jimbo Mathus along with drummer/percussionist Chris Phillips formed the band as a casual musical foray among friends and family in the area. It wasn't long before the band's quirky mix of jazz chords, folk music, and punk rock leanings attracted a national audience.

Years later, the band has emerged from a lengthy recording hiatus reinvigorated, reinvested, and rejuvenated. "It's not a reunion, it's a revival" has been the battle cry for Mathus since reforming the group in 2016. With an all star cast of New Orleans musicians, the band breathed new life into the old material.

Magician and comedian Christopher Wonder is a glorious, magical trainwreck - the bastard son of PT Barnum, Andy Kaufman, Evil Kinevil, and Tom Waits. He presents to you the world’s only children’s show for adults: a candy store full of circus, magic, punk and vaudeville. Recreating the past while giving you a glimpse of the future, he pushes the boundaries of what’s acceptable, never taking himself too seriously, walking a fine line between the beautiful and the absurd.
