Garbage with Marrisa Paternoster, Wellmont Theatre 3/20/2012

Garbage's current tour with IO Echo hit the NYC area last night (3/20) at The Wellmont Theatre in New Jersey. The show was notable for a couple reasons. The band brought out a fan named Shannon who comes to shows dressed like singer Shirley Manson. It was a sweet little moment. (Pics of that below.) Later, Screaming Females' Marissa Paternoster joined them onstage for their cover of Springsteen/Patti Smith's "Because the Night," which they did on a lot of dates on their Southwest/Westcoast tour last year. Their collaborative cover is actually coming out as a Record Store Day 2013 7". Says Garbage:

We decided to record the duet that we had been performing on tour with the Screaming Females towards the end of 2012. The SF flew across country from New Jersey to Los Angeles so we could record it all together at EastWest Studio 1 in Hollywood ; 2 drum kits, 2 bass rigs, 2 guitars, 2 microphones and 1 piano. No mean feat.
We missed openers IO Echo, but more pics from Garbage's Wellmont performance are below. The band hit NYC tomorrow night (3/22) for a sold-out show at Terminal 5.

Meanwhile, Garbage stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman on Tuesday to perform "Battle Me In" from 2012's Not Your Kind of People and you can watch that below.

"Patti Smith's "Because the Night"

You mean Bruce Springsteen's "Because the Night". Patti Smith's version was a cover.

^WRONG! Written by Patti covered by Bruce

Bruce was playing it live and then "gave" it to Patti. He never recorded it, but he wrote it and was performing it before Patti eventually recorded it.

Both wrong. The song was co-written. Patti released the first version. Bruce never released a version of the song until The Promise.

So yea, technically it is Patti Smith's Because The Night.

Bruce wrote the chorus to "Because The Night". Patti came up with the rest.

If there is a band that deserves its name, it's Garbage.
The singer is as sexy as a bag of potatoes.

1:18 you really will not find space or audience for your trolling
whether you like it or not, people who like this band are very into them, and whatever you may say does not spark the type of reaction hipster acts would
that being said, hope they repeat the duet tomorrow at T5

Bruce wrote almost everything. Patti changed the lyrics slightly, but kept the melody.

Bruce released a version on Live/1975–85 (1986), 24 years before The Promise (2010)

Great show! They never disappoint. Wish I was going tomorrow night.

Bruce wrote the basic song structure and chorus, didn't think he'd finish it, offered to Patti through Jimmy Iovine, who was working on both of their records at the time. Patti wrote original verses about then boyfriend, future husband, Fred "Sonic" Smith. Bruce used to play it live with his own different verses, but when came to release a re recorded version on the Promise box set, he decided to go with Patti's verses after all.
