HDNet Concert Prefaces New Material From Smashing Pumpkins

The day after Halloween usually sees a lot of jack-o'-lanterns that have met with some violence. In that vein, alternative rocker Billy Corgan could not have picked a better marketing strategy for his latest show.

Guitarist and singer Corgan will be headlining the Nov. 1 HDNet Concert Series entry "Smashing Pumpkins-The Fillmore Residency," along with fellow original band member drummer Jimmy Chamberlin. The two founding members of the Smashing Pumpkins are joined by the rest of the group - bassist Ginger Pooley, guitarist Jeff Schroeder and keyboardist Lisa Harriton - for their 2007 residency at San Francisco music venue The Fillmore.

The Smashing Pumpkins originally gained fame in the 1990s for songs such as "Cherub Rock," "Today," "Bullet with Butterfly Wings" and "1979," especially notable for the music videos they inspired. The original band dissolved in 2000, with Corgan and Chamberlin reuniting in 2007, along with new members Schroeder, Pooley - then Ginger Reyes - and Harriton.
