Taproot has released a video for their tune “The Everlasting.” The video is a continuation of their last officially released video “No Surrender.” The tunes come off the bands latest album The Episodes which was released in April of this year. Front man Stephen Richards says the video was a breeze conceptually, because it is a continuation from that last video and it’s not a “standing in a warehouse performing” type of video that you see too often in the rock world. Taproot will be with Nonpoint in Springfield at The Boondocks on North Dirksen October 6th.
Corgan's tea shop opens
He’s got a new album out, a tour that will be hitting up St. Louis and now he’s got a tea shop. It’s been in the works for a while, but Billy Corgan’s dreams of owning a tea shop are now reality. Corgan will play several acoustic sets when he holds his grand opening for Madame ZuZu’s tea shop in Highland Park, up north by Chicago. The Smashing Pumpkins front man says he envisioned the shop to be a kind of Chinese tea shop that would be found in Paris … if that makes any sense. There’ll be different types of music on the overhead speakers, photo galleries and art displays featured at the tea shop.
