Smashing Pumpkins' James Iha and D'Arcy were the
focus of attention at a
Scratchie Records shindig that took place at a Chicago club last night
(Fri., July 27). Iha and D'Arcy are co-owners of the Chicago-based label
that the duo formed a few years ago. One attendee told us that "James
and D'Arcy were standing around looking very fabulous" (and how could
they be anything but?). Iha was looking very uptown in a white suit and
polka-dot shirt, while D'Arcy was, to quote our source once again,
wearing a "lovely floor-length white satin dress and white sweater." At
one point D'Arcy joined Scratchie artists Fulflej on stage and sang
with the group. At the end of a song, whose name we didn't catch, D'Arcy
apologized for "screwing it up." D'Arcy and Iha are producing the group.
As for the crowd? Our source described them thusly: "Just a room full of
industry slime slithering their way past the free pizza and soda and
telling James how good his hair streaks looked." Oh yeah, Jenny McCarthy
wasn't in attendance.
