Flashback Friday! 1995 Riviera Theatre power outage show

I recently wrote in My SP Life that I recall listening to the radio broadcast of the Smashing Pumpkins’ infamous 1995 performance at the Riviera – the show when, during “Zero”, the power to the building went out. I was 14 years old at the time. It has now been 16 years minus 2 days since that broadcast (unless you are from the future and it’s now much longer than that). I recently went back to listen to that broadcast, and it reminded me of that wonderful night. Whether you were older or younger than I was at the time, take a listen to this awesome show today, tomorrow, yesterday, 2 days from now and forever.


  1. I loved Billy’s super tense interview before the show. I bet the interviewer cringes when he thinks about it.
