Video: Billy Corgan Performs At Madame Zuzu's Tea House

Billy Corgan performed an acoustic set Thursday afternoon at the grand opening of his new tea house Madame Zuzu's in Highland Park. Earlier this week, Corgan spoke with our pals at Gothamist, and he said the idea for the tea house was something he'd been wanting to do for 10 years. Madame Zuzu's features sugar-free vegan desserts, and Corgan has joked about writing a jingle for the shop.

Corgan dug deep into his repertoire for some of the Smashing Pumpkins' lesser-known gems yesterday. We'll kick it off with a tune you know: "Today" from Siamese Dream performed with Greg Bates.

"The Celestials" from the latest album Oceania

"With Every Light" from Machina/Machines of God.

"Jesus Is The Sun"

"Jupiter's Lament" from The Aeroplane Flies High

"By Starlight" from Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness

"In The Arms Of Sleep" from Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness

"Song for a Son" from Teargarden by Kaleidyscope, Vol. 1: Songs for a Sailor
