MASHING POTATOES | SMASHING PUMPKINS "GISH" 30th Anniversary Tribute

First there’s the music, which veers back and forth between huge, steely guitar constructions, not unlike Soundgarden plus Hendrix plus Zep plus Jane’s Addiction, and soft-focus moments not unlike a stoned Saturday afternoon in bed with someone you love, their cat, and some dust motes filtering through the sunbeams.

WA’s only dedicated SMASHING PUMPKINS tribute band MASHING POTATOES celebrate the 30th ANNIVERSARY of the Chicago quartets legendary debut album “GISH” at the ROSEMOUNT HOTEL in NORTH PERTH on SATURDAY 6 NOVEMBER 2021, performing the album in full and a set of classic cuts.
Joining in on a night of nostalgia will be special guests NAT RIPEPI (SOLO) and DJ MIGHTY MEL mixing up 90s alternative rock & dancefloor favs!
Before Nevermind, Ten, Badmotorfinger, or Dirt, there was Gish.

“You can see every crack in your persona. It was like looking inside yourself. Sometimes I listen to the record, and I just want to cry.” | Billy Corgan: 1991
