Garbage/Feist/JAMC at Osheaga - 8/4/12
Nineties alt-rock heroes Garbage returned this year with a new album, a refreshed attitude and a Shirley Manson who looked like she hasn't aged a day in her life. What's more impressive, though, was the fact that their repertoire of classic cuts didn't sound outdated at all. Instead, we're reminded that synth-laden rockers "Push It" and "Stupid Girl" were, in fact, much more ahead of their time and as a result sound brand new nowadays. Garbage was a cool blast from the past that festivalgoers who were unaware of their age would've mistaken them for a bright and exciting up-and-comer. - [National Post]While Lollapalooza was going down in Chicago, Montreal was holding the Osheaga Festival. It kicked off on Friday, August 3 and continued that Saturday (8/4) with sets from Feist, Garbage, Yeasayer, A$AP Rocky, The Raveonettes, The Black Lips, and more.
Actress Jessica Paré (aka Don's wife and "Zou Bisou Bisou" singer on Mad Men) joined The Jesus and Marcy Chain for "Just Like Honey" (which Scarlett Johansson sang on at Coachella '07) and "Sometimes Always" and video of that is below.
