Jawbreaker, one of SF's most important punk exports, has been given its own day in the city–May 4th, because of their track "Sluttering (May 4th)"–by the Internet at large, and SF Weekly put together an excellent mix of some of their best songs to listen to tomorrow and celebrate. [via SF Weekly]

Furthur–basically the remaining members of the Grateful Dead–have canceled their upcoming BottleRock Napa appearance, where they were scheduled to headline. The tragic news is due to guitarist Bob Weir's recent onstage collapse during a performance in New York. Get well soon, Bob! [via SFGate]

Burger Boogaloo 2013's rad lineup was announced, and this summer day in Oakland's Mosswood Park looks like it's gonna be one for the books. The Oblivians, Red Kross, Jonathan Richman, Guantanamo Baywatch, Traditional Fools and maybe Ronnie Spector?! Buying Tickets now. [burgerboogaloo.com]

Ty Segall offshoot Fuzz premiered a new video this week for their track "Fuzz's Fourth Dream," which beautifully captured Segall's John Bonham-esque drumming and guitarist Charlie Moothart's epic shredding.
