Sunset boulevard swelled today in front of guitar center where Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlin were honored with an induction into the RockWalk, which is apparently some sort of street gallery rock/blues/jazz thing.

Today was also officially declared Smashing Pumpkins Day in Los Angeles, be sure to mark your calendars.

The only real bummer was if you for some random reason needed a guitar at noon today, because guitar center was one hard place to get inside of. I have a ton more pictures, but wasn't sure if LA really was die-hard for the Pumpkins, so check them here if ya want.
