Muggsy's Rock Pick: Smashing Pumpkins

Billy the poet.
FRIDAY 10/19
Smashing Pumpkins, Anberlin @ Allstate Arena, 6920 N. Mannheim Rd, Rosemont, IL

There was a poem written on the bathroom wall in the men's room at the old Lounge Ax in Lincoln Park. It went something like, "Billy Corgan blows winos for chump change." Not a poem really, but Muggsy used to enjoy reading it nonetheless. After the meteoric rise of the Pumpkins, this piece of graffiti was amended to: "Billy Corgan still blows winos for chump change." Muggsy thought this was a bit unfair as Mr. Corgan obviously could have afforded to give up that occupation by that point
