Billy Corgan has officially opened his tea house, Madame ZuZu's, in Chicago. The Smashing Pumpkin decided to celebrate the opening with an acoustic set.
"It's an exciting day," Corgan said. "This has been a labor of love."
The new tea shop is based on Corgan's idea of what a Chinese tea house would look like in Paris in the 1930s.
"I want it to be a social hub that's interactive," he said. "You're trying to draw in different people from different walks of life. We want a dynamic in there. We don't want a passive space."
