Smashing Pumpkins doc 'If All Goes Wrong' gets a big-screen debut
To commemorate their 20th anniversary, the Smashing Pumpkins aren’t just touring this fall — they’re also coming to a movie theater near you. The 105-minute documentary If All Goes Wrong chronicles the seminal alt-rock band’s unconventional 19-concert stint in Asheville, N.C., and San Francisco as part of their 2007 reunion/reformation (with two of the original four members). The intimate film, which features interviews with head Pumpkin Billy Corgan (pictured), his cohorts, fans, journalists, and musicians like Pete Townshend, will screen in 40 cities across the country for one day only: Nov. 6. For those who prefer a couch trip, Wrong will be released Nov. 11 on DVD in a two-disc set that also contains 19 live songs (six of them new) from the San Francisco shows.
