It's Sluttering Day. (May 4th.) [Bay Area Wanderer]

Jawbreaker in The Mission District

Jawbreaker in their natural environment.

It's May 4th.

Today is Sluttering Day.

Why? The song, "Sluttering (May 4th)" by Jawbreaker. That'swhy.

(As we keep saying,) Jawbreaker is the sound of The Mission District; bleary, heart-on-sleeve, over-smart, and broke.

Here is what 16th and Mission looks like on May 4th, 2012.

If you can help it, don't be needlessly unkind to anyone today.


For Dave D., Lrrrrn, and even Jess too. For anyone who still gets chills from this music. Listen to the song again.
