Yes, it's true. Beloved local mind-blowers, Deerhunter are scheduled to open two of the nine Smashing Pumpkins residency shows at N. Carolina's The Orange Peel. The NC residency Pumpkins' shows start this Saturday 6/23 & end Thursday 7/05...Deerhunter will be the openers for the 6/29 & 6/30 dates. I'm not sure if this was initiated by Deerhunter or the Pumpkins but either way there will no doubt be some very confused SP fans. Or maybe some very happy ones. Ah, who knows. I'm still really confused myself.
