The Smashing Pumpkins have announced a virtual event celebrating the 30th anniversary of the band’s 1991 debut album, Gish.

The two-hour stream premieres May 29 — a day after the actual Gish anniversary — and will feature an album listening party and a Q&A with frontman Billy Corgan and drummer Jimmy Chamberlain. The duo will also share a “special world exclusive preview of unreleased music,” a press release promises.

Tickets cost a fitting $19.91, and will go on sale this Friday, May 28, at noon ET via Store.SmashingPumpkins.com. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the PAWS Chicago animal shelter, of which Corgan has been a long supporter.

The stream will be filmed at Corgan’s Madame ZuZu’s tea shop in Highland Park, Illinois, which will offer several exclusive new items in celebration of the Gish milestone, including a special Gish-themed cake and beer.
