Billy Corgan and James Iha – Smashing Pumpkins

For Chicago music fans of a certain age, 1993 holds a special place in their memories. It was the year Billboard magazine declared the city “Cutting Edge’s New Capital.” Two of that year’s biggest players, Smashing Pumpkins and Liz Phair, have recently teamed up for the In Plainsong Tour which featured a hometown stop at the gorgeous, acoustically perfect Civic Opera House. Original Pumpkins guitarist James Iha was the evening’s surprise guest, resulting in three-fourths of the classic, early nineties lineup (along with drummer Jimmy Chamberlin) playing together in Chicago for the first time in ages. Curt Baran tried to keep nostalgia at bay while pointing his lens at the proceedings.
