Default Life's a draaaaaaaaaaaaaaaag

I seem to remember reading in Kerrang that on halloween one year (I think '99) the Pumpkins did a gig in drag. Is this true? Are there any photo's of the gig? I ask because I may be doing a gig in drag in the coming weeks and it got me wondering.

Excuse isn't good enough.

I think you just want to see Billy Corgan as the girl you've always wanted him to be.

Billy's looking sweet!

What did D'arcy do though?

Brilliant, yet kind of disturbing.

Anyone know if it's true about the gig in '99 or just a figment of my warped imagination?

I wish they'd played the UK on the Arising tour... Return Home was so bloated and lacking, they seemed to kick the adore songs into shape then as well.
