Today the Smashing Pumpkins will be playing at Red Bulls Sound Select at SXSW. We secured a press pass and sent a local Crestfallen reader to report for us from the show. We hope to have some pictures but for sure we plan to have the setlist for you! We will also be keeping our eye on the social universe all night for additional pictures and keep you up to date!
