Smashing Pumpkins Take Over Led Zeppelin-Themed Tea Shop In NYC

The Smashing Pumpkins have a new album coming out tomorrow (Dec. 9), but if you’re in New York, you can pick it up a day early. Pumpkins frontman and tea aficionado Billy Corgan partnered up with Led Zeppelin-themed tea shop Physical GraffiTea — go ahead and groan, we’ll wait — to make the new Pumpkins album, ‘Monuments to an Elegy,’ available a day before the street date.

(The building that houses the punny tea shop is the same that appeared on the cover of Led Zeppelin’s 1975 album ‘Physical Graffiti.’ Get it now?)

The shop will also be selling Madame ZuZu tea, along with some limited edition Pumpkins merch, including coffee mugs and Christmas ornaments. The shop will be open until 10PM ET tonight. Oh, and if you’re in the area, you might try attending the Pumpkins concert at Webster Hall — it’s sold-out, so be prepared for outrageous prices from the friendly local ticket scalpers.

Fans in the Chicago area can also stop by Corgan’s own tea shop, Madame ZuZu’s, today for the album.
