The reunited Smashing Pumpkins were rolling into the feel-good vibes of their upcoming arena tour this past week with a house show in Los Angeles. The performanced that played into their classic ‘1979’ music video. The show was not without incident as neighbors near the house party were not having it, despite getting heads up about the show. The police did get called on the show, which took place in a backyard. Billy Corgan took to the Instagram to apologize to the Studio City neighborhood for his band’s “nihilistic noise”.
The Pumpkins sound on point in this video that surfaced from the special show.
Great times in LaLa. Appreciation to those that came out to the Troubador. And apologies to those in Studio City for the disturbance of our nihilistic noize. ‘‘Twas a full moon and something just gets into the blood. And respect to the police, who let us finish the set. Mendacious as our conclusion was. #smashingpumpkins @smashingpumpkins
