The reunited Jawbreaker continue to play shows with very cool openers, and the openers for their upcoming Chicago show have been revealed. That show, which happens November 4 at Aragon Ballroom, will be with two of Chicago's veteran hometown heroes: Naked Raygun and Smoking Popes. The show is being presented by Chicago festival Riot Fest, where Jawbreaker made their official return last year. Tickets are still available. Show flyer below.
Jawbreaker also have San Francisco shows on October 23, 24, and 25 at The Fillmore, with Street Eaters opening the first two nights and Dirty Denim opening night three, plus a comedian each night: Kate Willett on night one, Clare O’Kane on night two, and Jessica Sele on night three.
Jawbreaker were supposed to play Coney Island with Les Savy Fav and J Robbins (of Jawbox) and Asbury Park with Lucero and War On Women this weekend, but those shows were postponed due to the hurricane. Stay tuned for updates on Jawbreaker's rescheduled NY and NJ shows.
As for Smoking Popes, they're about to release Into The Agony, their first album with their original lineup since 1998, on October 12 via Asian Man. For Naked Raygun, this will be their first show in over a year.
