Billy Corgan "Sunday with Rumi" (performance video)
Published Mar 31, 2014This past Sunday (March 30), Smashing Pumpkins main man Billy Corgan performed four "sonic impressions" based on poems by 13th century Sufi theologian Rumi. Now, 10 minutes of footage from the event is available to watch.
The clip looks more or less the same as Corgan's recent Siddhartha performance, as we see him twiddling dials and coaxing electronic bleeps out of a wall full of audio equipment. This "Sunday with Rumi" gig took place in Chicago at the songwriter's Madame ZuZu's tea shop.
It's not exactly Corgan's most engaging performance, but the curious can check it out below via Stereogum.
