The Smashing Pumpkins are a hell of a lot better than Marilyn Manson. Which is why the pair of ’90s-repping, alt-rock icons’ “The End Times Tour” that swings through SA on Saturday seems somewhat preposterous. It’s like giving equal billing to a footnote and a multi-chapter section in a book. At any rate, Billy Corgan (pictured) and company, who released their surprisingly killer ninth album Monuments to an Elegy last year, are experiencing a renaissance of sorts and, we all just have to deal with the fact that they’ve brought along their sometime ally, sometime enemy for the ride.
