Smashing Pumpkins are today's CYY 25 Band of the Day. We're celebrating our 25 years as Portland's Alternative Rock Station with 25 great bands that ARE CYY. The Pumpkins have been here a few times over the years. In fact, you can go back to PRE-CYY days when the band came to a club called "Bad Habits" back in 1991. Wayyyyy early on. The band played here in 1996 at the Civic Center and in 2012 at the State Theatre. We brought them to town for an autograph session back in 2000! It was at Bull Moose in the Old Port. Hundreds of CYY freaks showed up for that one to meet the band. And it was really cool when the then-Mayor of Portland, Nick Mavodones gave the band the Key to the City.
