Garbage

Beneath hazy blueish-purple lights, Garbage gave show as cleanly produced as their albums and as irresistibly catchy as their most pervasive hits. The strutting thump of Version 2.0 single "Push It" began a set as jam-packed as the venue with a steady stream of songs allowing few breaks. Even the breaks were electric interactions between the charming Manson and the audience as she offered hilarious commentary on barely noticeable technical difficulties, dating horror stories, and items audience members were hoisting into the air for her to notice, like a Scottish flag.

Balancing the old with the new, Garbage seem to have found a nice way of coexisting in both the past and the present. It was endearing to see pairs of parents with their children of a variety of ages sing enthusiastically in sync to everything like the high-energy, raucous performance of 2005's "Why Do You Love Me," which included a healthy amount of fist-pumping from fellow balcony members. Slowing things down, a seductive "#1 Crush" felt like a hauntingly smooth transition to the second half of their pre-encore set that ended with the beautiful final track off of their newest album, "Beloved Freak." - [Village Voice]

The East Coast leg of Garbage's current tour with IO Echo swept into NYC on Friday night (3/22) for the band's first visit to Terminal 5. As with The Wellmont Theatre gig a couple days prior, Marissa from Screaming Females came out for their cover of Patti Smith's "Because the Night" which is being released as a single for Record Store Day. Video of that, and more pictures from T5, are below.

No "Supervixen"? Best song that band ever wrote.

Also, @10:25, I didn't know it was possible for the commentariat of BV to actually bottom out, but you may have accomplished that feat.

Agree on 10:25's nadir. That being said, of all the bands that sucked horribly and people liked, this band always sucked the most horribly. The musicians always sounded supremely uninterested in what they were doing. What is the appeal?

Garbage always were and still are a second rate Curve.

Curve? Yeah ok. They killed it. They still blow away any of today's alt rock bands.

Did anyone notice there was a guy (then a woman) on the far left side of signing the lyrics to every song...very cool...

Don't like Garbage? Fine. But why are you here then? I'm not a hardcore fan, but I went to this show and it was very well done. Lots of energy from the whole band, powerful songs. And Manson=hot.

Shirley is a siren goddess that soothes my heart<3 Their music is VERY expressive with impact. I'm pleased to be expecting an exciting experience here in Chicago soon!!!

I'm 67 yr old, raised on 40's, 50's, & 60's music yet this group really turns me on to the modern rock. Shirley Manson is awesome.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.even haters.yet when you come into Garbage's & The World of the Darkling Army spewing nothing but anonymous hatred and baseless insults all it does is offer up a clear portrayal of who you are. A convictionless coward who has nothing better to with their time but offer up the meaningless rantings of an asshat who has nothing better to pull
out of their ass or hat than a rabbit with more to offer the world than your irrationsl thoughtss, as it hop up
