Smashing Pumpkins roll out an ice cream truck in Wicker Park

It does’n seem like February weather is sending you chasing after your neighborhood ice cream truck, and then this happened. The Smashing Pumpkins are gearing up for their big return with Billy Corgan being rejoined by original members James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin, with an ominous countdown clicking down to the 15th. Today in Los Angeles and New York, as well here in Chicago, fans have able to seek out a specially designed ice cream truck they can draw on and engage in an interactive contest. The winner get exclusive prizes and more.

The ice cream truck is symbolically connected with the band after playing  a role in their classic ‘Today’ video.

The SP ice cream truck hit the streets of Wicker Park near Violet Hour. Our own Indie-Pendenat Dance Party DJ’s and former Kill Hannah bassist Greg Corner found the SP truck and shared some social media love for it on Facebook. 

This is all going on while there is a bit of drama between the Pumpkins and former bassist D’Arcy Wretzky , read that story here.
