The Smashing Pumpkins played a house party. Of course, someone called the cops.

C’mon. ‘‘Twas a full moon and something just gets into the blood. For example, how about playing a house party? Having the cops drop in would be a nice bit of publicity. And apologies to those in Studio City for the disturbance of our nihilistic noize. And Billy isn’t adverser to trying some different things this time out. Mission accomplished, then. Great times in LaLa. After a show at The Troubadour Club in LA (pretty cool: the place only holds about 400 people), The Pumpkins rolled up to a home in Studio City, California, to play a few tunes and to re-enact scenes from the iconic “1979” video. It all seemed pretty chill until some neighbour called the cops, complaining about the noise. The Smashing Pumpkins are getting some pretty solid reviews on their three-of-four-are-there reunion tour. Mendacious as our conclusion was. And respect to the police, who let us finish the set. Everyone involved had to know that there would be complaints, right? Appreciation to those that came out to the Troubador. Here’s what it looked like the other night. In fact, this was the exact same house where the original video was shot.
