Seen Your Video: Jawbox Reunion on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon"

Wowza...This was the first Jawbox performance in 13 years and their sound was tighter than many bands who play all the time. As we said a few days ago, the Fallon show will be the only reunion performance for the reissue of the classic, For Your Own Special Sweetheart. Tracks played were "Savory," as shown on the program, and "FF=66" and "68," which were done only in rehearsal.

If you're curious about the shirt that J. Robbins' is wearing, SMA is Spinal Muscular Distrophy, something his young son, Callum, suffers from. Other famed DC-locals The Dismemberment Plan reunited a few years back specifically for a benefit to raise money for Callum's care. (Robbins was a co-producer on D-Plan's Emergency & I and Change.)
