It's TUESDAY which, as we all know, means CONCERT ANNOUNCEMENTS! So without further adieu....
On June 16, Carnegie of Homestead Music Hall
hosts "The Smashing Pumpkins In Plainsong — An Acoustic-Electro Evening."
That's right: Billy Corgan and friends will be playing an acoustic-ish set of stuff from the Pumpkins catalogue, plus Zwan
songs and solo works. I feel like there's some sort of joke to be made here but, i mean, it's not like I'm NOT going to this. ($39, on sale Saturday).

will be there on June 22 ($55-75, on sale Friday); Iron & Wine
