News of the Jawbreaker reunion that will headline at Riot Fest got indie-music fans of a certain age very excited when it was announced a few months ago. So expect tickets to the Chicago premiere of the band documentary Don't Break Down: a Film About Jawbreaker at The Logan Theatre on Sept. 14 to sell out quickly.

The film catches up with the three principles—Blake Schwarzenbach, Chris Bauermeister, and Adam Pfahler—in 2007 as they listened to their back catalog and shared memories with each other.

It also features interviews with Chicago heavy hitters Steve Albini and Jessica hopper, as well as Green Day's Billy Joe Armstrong, Foo Fighter Chris Shifflet, Smoking Pope Josh Caterer, and other musical luminaries and gadflys.
