Do you live in San Francisco? Do you have plans to move to The Golden City before summer’s end? Do you like movies? How about punk rock?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, perhaps you should head down to the Alamo Draft House Theater on August 11th to see the premiere of Don’t Break Down: A Film About Jawbreaker.*

*Don’t mistake any of this with the hit teen comedy Jawbreaker, featuring young Rose McGowan playing the role of an accidental murderess turned prom queen.

After 21 years away, the recently reunited Jawbreaker will make a triumphant return to the stage at the 2017 Riot Fest in Chicago. The iconic punk band’s documentary– which debuts just a month ahead of their performance– was created over the course of ten years, and will show the history of one of the east coast’s most influential bands.
