Lunch With Jawbox

Jimmy Fallon boasts a bizarre but wonderful D.C. punk reunion

And now here they are, taking a quick pre-show snapshot with a gushing Fallon, if only because Coletta got the skirt she's wearing for free, and she promised to get a photo for the designer's blog. ("The buzz in the building has been amazing," Fallon gushes. "And my Twitter exploded.") ?uestlove signs a couple pairs of drumsticks. Blake Schwarzenbach, Carrie Brownstein, Fred Armisen, and Travis Morrison all mill about backstage. The show starts; soon, Jimmy is mixing holiday drinks with Rachel Maddow. And finally, Jawbox are ushered onstage, and their now-sizable entourage is filed into the back of the house to watch as they blast through "Savory" again, with the same tightly wound ferocity, as if the intervening five hours—or 12 years—had never happened. It does not sound, or feel, like the last song they will ever play.
