Tonight, Tonight - The Supplemental Stuff

Here are some more supplemental materials to read after listening to the show.  Apparently they were in Boston Tuesday night...which I didn't realize until Tuesday night.  I almost got to see the original lineup in Providence way way back in 1999.  Perhaps it's just never meant to be.

Want a quick rundown of the Smashing Pumpkins? This video from Diffuser shares some key tidbits about the band for those of you unfamiliar with their oeuvre.

As always, here are write-ups about the full Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness album that "Tonight, Tonight" is featured on from AllMusic and a brief summary of just the song on Wikipedia.

Finally, here's a quick acoustic version of "Tonight, Tonight" by Billy Corgan from the Howard Stern Show.  I still love the bombastic orchestral backing of the original, but, knowing more about the song as a response to childhood abuse, there's something really touching about the quieter, guitar-only version.
