for creative loafing.


Hey you! Yes you, with the mouse hovering over the “purchase” button for Silversun Pickups tickets. What do you think you’re doing? Don’t you know Christmas is right around the corner, and that you should be saving your money for presents? Listen, I know you miss the Smashing Pumpkins. We all do. But if you want to hear someone appropriating the sounds of that once-great band, why not just watch some YouTube videos of Zwan or something? Seeing the Silversun Pickups is going to leave you feeling empty and disappointed inside, just like the nostalgic goodbye Twinkie you ate when you heard that Hostess was shutting down. There, there. Someday, someone will write an album as good as Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. But Silversun Pickups are not those someones. Now go find something nice for your mom for the holidays.
