The show, which took place this past September 17 in the Chicago suburb of Highland Park, Illinois, at Madame ZuZu’s Tea Shop and Art Studio, was originally live-streamed on Veeps. For the event, a Tower Records-inspired pop-up store was staged inside Madame ZuZu’s, which Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan co-owns.
