Billy Corgan - (Smashing Pumpkins) - Eight Hour Musical Interpretation of Siddhartha - at Madame Zuzus Teahouse
Have you been to Madame ZuZu's Teahouse in Highland Park, Illinois? It is a place were you pay some extra money for gourmet tea, where the tea connoisseurs speak in terms of tea varietals. You may also run into the owner, no other than Billy Corgan. On Feb. 27th Billy will be playing an eight hour long ambient set in his tea house based on the Herman Hesse's 1922 novel Siddharta. One wonders if bathroom breaks are allowed especially with all that tea drinking.
From Billy's Facebook announcement:
"On 2//28 I'll be doing a show at Madame ZuZu's Teahouse; start time noon, and due to nature of performance it'll last 8-9 hours. So see http://MadameZuzus.com in coming days for details on seating and admissions. As with all our events there is no charge. Performance will be centered around an ambient/musical interpretation of Hermann Hesse's Siddhartha; built by modular synthesis, on the fly. Readings of the text to go hand in hand with whatever is created; + the first @Hexistential poster, and event t-shirts too. Hope to see you there."
