Stream Billy Corgan's 'Siddhartha' Performance Live Now...At Your Own Risk

By Lisa White in Arts & Entertainment on Feb 28, 2014 9:45PM

Last week we posted about Billy Corgan setting up shop in his tea store, Madame ZuZu's, in Highland Park to do a performance piece on Hermann Hesse’s Siddhartha. The kicker being the performance lasts 8-9 hours. Well, today is the day. And if you weren't able to be there in person to test your limits, Corgan decided to make it easier for you and stream the performance online.

We've clicked over a few times today, hoping for something truly out there and original. But all we've heard is some computer beeps and a guy that sounds slightly like John Oliver reading the book. Hmm. We're fans of experimental works but Corgan needs to bust out a guitar to help this sleep-inducing adventure along. If you are curious or feel the need to give yourself a sonic flogging, we've got the live feed below. We're going to go listen to some Zwan to cleanse our palate now.
