Live Music Recommendations #2 – Smashing Pumpkins – Live in San Francisco (1994)
At this point, I’m beginning to miss concerts, but not in the sense that I’m dying to go out. Considering it’s a general privileged standpoint to whine about missing concerts, it could be worse.
Like I’ve done since my adolescence, I’ve always had an intense infatuation with live music. Not necessarily from an in-person experience, given my own sheltered personality, but from watching previous live performances on YouTube.
Anyway, Live Music Recommendations is a series of blogs dedicated to recommending live concerts to check out. Unlike Music Recommendations, this will focus on one live concert worth checking out as opposed to multiple albums.
The recommendation for this post is a performance by Smashing Pumpkins in 1994. The 1990s general rock scene would’ve been significantly different if the Smashing Pumpkins never existed. This performance is an example of the pure power and rawness the Smashing Pumpkins exemplified throughout their history.
Check it out and give it a listen. If you’re a fan of Smashing Pumpkins, this will undoubtedly appeal to you. If not, I don’t know why you’re reading this in the first place.
