  • In what’s being called “the most Billy Corgan thing ever,” the Smashing Pumpkins frontman has announced he will perform an eight-to-nine hour “ambient/musical interpretation” of the 1922 Hermann Hesse novel, Siddhartha. The performance will take place at the Chicago teahouse he opened, Madame ZuZu’s Teahouse, on February 28th. Send reports, please. [Pitchfork]
