Having just played Austin, Jawbreaker expanded their reunion tour and also announced exciting openers for their Coney Island and Asbury Park shows. The Coney Island show -- September 14 at Ford Amphitheater -- is with the always-crazy Les Savy Fav, whose shows are few and far between these days, and J Robbins (playing with a full band) of the similarly named '90s punk/emo band Jawbox (who went on the "Monsters of Jaw" tour with Jawbreaker in 1995).
The Asbury park show -- September 15 at Stone Pony Summer Stage -- is with country punk vets Lucero (who have a well-known cover of Jawbreaker's "Kiss the Bottle") and rising feminist punks War On Women. Tickets for both of those shows are still available.
Lucero, who recently told us about the music they've been listening to, also have a new album coming out soon and several other tour dates, including a headlining show in Brooklyn on 10/12 at Warsaw (tickets). War On Women are also touring with Subhumans right around the time of that Coney Island show (but they aren't playing Subhumans' Brooklyn show).
