Big names for this year's Live 105 Not So Silent Night fest at HP Pavilion in San Jose were thrown around for a while, but the biggest player to enter the fray as headliner was just announced to be the Smashing Pumpkins, who haven't really given the Bay Area a totally awesome show since their residency at the Fillmore in 2007, when they actually invited fans with cameras to document the show.

My Chemical Romance, Dolores-Park-music-video-filming Phoenix, the Black Keys and Broken Bells round out the indie rockified night for concert goers, plus a surprise local band yet to be announced. Will you make the trek to San Jose for this lineup of MTV favorites?

Presale tickets went up for grabs yesterday and will continue to be available until tomorrow, November 6th, when the general public can start scoring seats. To get in before it sells out, sign up to be a Live 105 Activist here. The show is on Friday, December 10th.
