Titled “A Special Acoustic Halloween Performance,” last night’s Smashing Pumpkins show in Columbus sold out in like 2 days. But judging from what people are saying in our message board, this $40 a ticket show sucked hard:
Man, did that pumpkins show really fucking suck.
It could have been epic.
Instead, billy hit me across the face with his dick.
thanks billy. for nothing.
the first hour was acoustic (though all the guitars were distorted) and featured covers such as “monster mash”, “wipeout” and “hang on sloopy”. there were no pumpkins songs. it was amusing for a couple songs, but wore thin when the band seemed to not really know how to play said tunes.
