Concert announcements: Die Antwoord, Taake, Smashing Pumpkins, more


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).
