The Fillmore has seen its ups and downs. The famed music venue where The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, and Janis Joplin got their start has survived earthquakes, foreclosures, name changes, and an owner who died in a helicopter crash. When The Fillmore finally reopened for good (for now) in 1994, the Smashing Pumpkins played the first show.
Well, Pumpkins Fever is back, and has spread through San Francisco like crabs in a cheap Cancun hotel. On June 15 and 16, Billy Corgan and the gang return, stopping at the theatre to play 11 shows, yes 11, from July 15 through August 1. The performances are part of a reunion tour (which, technically, only reunites two of the original members).
This relatively major detail hasn't deterred the half-Pumpkins from selling out every performance. While The Fillmore almost always charged $25 per show, tickets are now going for up to $400 through ancillary brokers (read: scalpers dressed up in a pretty Web site). Craig's List trades and sales are feverishly taking place as we write. The theatre only holds 1,250 people, and, it seems, many more Pumpkins-loving San Franciscans want to relive the 11th grade and see a bald Corgan in his trademark Zero T-shirt crooning "Tonight, Tonight."
For Eastern Coasters who can't shake their love for 90s nostalgia rock, the band is playing in Asheville, N.C. today and at Live Earth in East Rutherford, N.J. Saturday. So you can try your luck at these venues. That is, if sell your body or first born for tickets.

April 01 Milan, Itlay @ Alcatrazz
Which has been described as a "fantastic but strange discotheque":
The disco Alcatraz gave me one of the most incredible experiences during my first year in Milan. The place is huge, with 3 different dance floors with different kinds of music. The whole place is actually an old bus-station, but you can't see much of all those buses nowadays...
Tickets are still available on the NIN site. As for Kermit, his pain lingers, and he will not be touring until he gets out of Promises and finalizes his ugly divorce with Miss Piggy.
If he does join NIN for the European leg of this tour, we are totally hopping a plane to the continent.
Justin Timberlake is taking SexyBack to go, well, all over the place. The lithe ladies man and FutureSex/LoveSounds creator will hit the road in a big way next year, launching a 34-stop arena tour across North America, starting in San Diego on Jan. 8. The itinerary reads like a laundry list of some of America's greatest venues in its best cities...and their bastard cousins. Madison Square Garden in NYC, then Mohegan Sun, etc.
For a little pre-show stop, his first venue is LA's Kodak Theater on Dec.5 where he'll "warm up" at the Victoria's Secret's annual fashion show with Gisele. JT seems prepared, saying, "I've been rehearsing the band, getting the show ready and tight," adding, "What--and I might even show up. So that's pretty exciting. No, seriously, come out. I'll see you guys there." Watch it JT, you haven't sold anything out yet.
The Strokes will be playing "a not-really-secret-at-all" show this Saturday (December 3) at Trabendo. Tickets go on sale Friday morning at 10 a.m. at Fnac Opera. Go, and be sure to let us know how the show is!
