In an attempt to recreate some of the youthful scenes of their “1979,” video, The Smashing Pumpkins annoyed locals and were shut down by the police during a special Los Angeles house show.
After a comeback performance at the 400-person Troubadour on Wednesday (June 27), the alt-rockers took to a nearby neighborhood for a show at the same house that their classic video was filmed. The neighbors weren't impressed though.
Citing loud noises and an influx of cars taking up all the street parking, neighbors complained, eventually forcing the police to get involved. Fortunately, the band was able to finish their set, but their planned “Cherub Rock,” encore didn't pan out.
Lead singer Billy Corgan took to Instagram on Friday (June 29) to thank fans and apologize to the locals. “Great times in LaLa, Appreciation to those that came out to the Troubadour. And apologies to those in Studio City for the disturbance of our nihilistic noize.”
