Billy Corgan isn’t one for vacations…he’d rather casually embark on a continent-hopping world tour. After the Smashing Pumpkins’ disbandment in December 2000, Corgan wasted no time in forming Zwan—every ‘90s alt-rock fan’s dream lineup. With members hailing from the likes of Slint, Tortoise and A Perfect Circle, the driving bass lines and substantial guitar coverage on the band’s sole album, Mary Star of the Sea, came to no surprise. The eclectic five-piece landed at Metro for a dreamy three-night residency from January 20-23, 2000. The sets included the album in its entirety but included a few welcome surprises, including a cut by The Associations to a cover of Alice Cooper’s “I’m Eighteen.”
Listen to the final night of the residency here.
