Pumpkins carved-up on Halloween

Judging by the chilly reaction of the DoneWaiting Message Board, the forty bucks a throw Smashing Pumpkins gig in Ohio last night was all trick, little treat:

the first hour was acoustic (though all the guitars were distorted) and featured covers such as "monster mash", "wipeout" and "hang on sloopy". there were no pumpkins songs. it was amusing for a couple songs, but wore thin when the band seemed to not really know how to play said tunes.

One poster suggested that it was like being hit in the face by Billy Corgan's dick - which, of course, some people would still pay good money for.
