Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlin of The Smashing Pumpkins performing at Merriweather Post Pavilion

90’s alt-rock ground-breakers The Smashing Pumpkins kicked off their co-headlining North American tour with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds last month, and I caught their performance at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD. I was there taking pictures from the soundboard and reminiscing my depressingly sad and lonely teenage years. That’s not necessarily a bad thing though. The Smashing Pumpkins were one of those bands that oddly comforted me during my rock-filled adolescence, and I was once again comforted by their sound and presence.
