TVD Ticket Giveaway: The Smashing Pumpkins, the Patriot Center, 12/9

The Smashing Pumpkins, known for their diverse, densely layered, and guitar-heavy sound—and that 1995 mega-hit album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness—is on tour in support of their recent release, Oceania, with a stop at DC’s Patriot Center this Sunday (12/9), and we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away to one of you.

The album is the band’s first full-length effort with their new line-up, which now features Mike Byrne on drums, Nicole Fiorentino on bass, Jeff Schroeder on guitar, and the only original member Billy Corgan, who emphasizes the album’s production as a whole band.

Corgan explained to NME, “I’ve been adamant in stressing that, as a group, first and foremost, we are here to make new music together. Jeff, Mike, and Nicole have all made significant contributions to the tone and texture of Oceania, which is an album that is unlike any I’ve ever made. Yet at the same time I believe it upholds the same musical values I’ve always pushed for with the Pumpkins, be they progressive, emotional, epic or restless.”

The music of Oceania is some of Corgan’s most direct and emotionally potent since the late nineties. With their new release, The Smashing Pumpkins show off the incredible chemistry between the new line-up and the potential to be a dominating force in the world of alternative rock.

Enter to win the pair of tickets in the comments below with a band that includes a food item in its name.  Mine is nineties Irish rock band The Cranberries. 

We’ll choose one winner at noon on Thursday, December 6! Tickets are still available.
