    Nina Corcoran, writing for Sterogum, with a review of Jawbreaker’s San Francisco show:

    On paper, Jawbreaker’s show at Rickshaw Stop seemed like a dream. It marked the band’s first headlining show in 21 years in their hometown of San Francisco, no less, at a 400-cap venue. Two local, since-defunct ‘90s punk bands — Monsula and Nuisance — opened. Jawbreaker kept to their DIY roots to a certain extent, opening it up to all ages and selling tickets for $20 with an intense anti-scalper will-call pick-up. For a band that swore it would never reunite, but then announced it would indeed reunite at Riot Fest 2017, performing a proper set in the small-sized venue setting they never broke out of during their career seemed as good as it could get. Yet somehow, Jawbreaker exceeded that.
