UPDATE! – Smashing Pumpkins @ the Wiltern (L.A.) 10/5/11


Show was EPIC. They played TONS of obscure album tracks and didn’t lean on their radio hits. This is the fourth time I’ve seen them live, and it was the first time they didn’t play Today or Disarm. The setlist seemed like a “nod” to the fans who were in attendance; a collection of mostly mid-30’s/40’s ex-alt rocker dads who learned to play guitar by practicing along with Gish, Siamese Dream and Pisces Iscariot (like me except for the “dad” part).
