The Smashing Pumpkins Get Their Guitar Center Groove On

If you’re planning on staying home tonight (and have DIRECTV), one of the very best ways to kick off your weekend is available via the satellite cabler’s Audience Network channel 239. At 10 p.m. PT, the live concert series Guitar Center Sessions returns.

Unusually, this weekend’s episode featuring The Smashing Pumpkins and next Friday’s performance by Frank Turner were taped at SXSW in Austin. But after that, all the way through to the program’s 50th episode on July 26 featuring Dhani Harrison’s THENEWNO2, it’s back to the chain’s flagship location in Hollywood:

“Today, more than ever before, any artist, established or up and coming, is working within a new convoluted paradigm full of challenges,” says show host and backstage interviewer Nic Harcourt via recent press release. “The new episodes of Guitar Center Sessions feature a truly diverse group of artists, all sharing the ups and downs of their careers in the interviews and delivering blistering performances on stage.”

Season of Wishes: Make-A-Wish Brings Nicest Child On The Planet To The Grove

The Make-A-Wish Foundation, the organization that makes sick kids each and every dream come true granted the wish of a child who wants to give other kids a bunch of toys.

After prolonged hospital stays (due to a rare condition that causes tumors to grow throughout her body) 12-year-old Madison Smith said her wish was to provide toys for all the kids at Mattel Children’s Hospital at UCLA this Christmas.

Madison saw her wish come true at The Grove’s Christmas tree lighting spectacular last night, when a band of Santa’s elves delivered a bag full of toys headed for the hospital. Also on stage were The Cheetah Girls, Goo Goo Dolls, Mannheim Steamroller, Sean Kingston and Emmy Rossum.

Little Madison is pictured here with Lauren Conrad, who, we’re guessing, is rethinking her Christmas wish list now.
