Smashing Pumpkins hit Sacramento
Tuesday, August 28, 7 p.m., Golden 1 Center, $29-$125
Instead of consulting music critics, let’s get a celebrity’s take on the band. Comedian John Mulaney posted about his August 1 trip to see the Sm’Pumps in New York. He had a really, really good time. If you take Mulaney’s word for it, go check out the angsty, Billy Corgan-fronted band. To boot, Metric is playing. I don’t have a celebrity endorsement lined up, but I’ve enjoyed Metric, so you probably might, too. Golden 1 Center, 500 David J Stern Walk.
