Jazz group Squirrel Nut Zippers recently filmed a performance video for their single “La Grippe” at Detroit, MI’s The Magic Bag. The video, the song for which is lifted from the band’s debut recording, The Inevitable, can be seen below.

Commenting on the video, band leader Jimbo Mathus said, “Inspired over 25 years ago by no less than real life events, historical research, (Spanish flu), (Edgar Allen Poe’s ‘king pest’), and other sources including ‘Popular Delusions & the Madness of Crowds.’ The Squirrel Nut Zippers are here for you and we shall return triumphant.”
