Shirley Manson of Garbage @ La Zona Rosa - 10/10/2012
Way back in April Garbage was forced to postpone their Houston and Austin shows. They did get to Waterloo Records for a Record Store Day in-store visit, but there was no music performance to be had in April.
It took almost six months, but they finally made it back to play a sold-out La Zona Rosa w/ tour mates Screaming Females. It was a great show, but not without a little bittersweet thrown in. As we reported earlier, the screamingest female herself, Marissa Paternoster, has been fighting mono for quite a while. It has taken its toll, and the show last night at LZR will be the last one for Screaming Females this year as all other 2012 dates have been cancelled.
During SF's set, Garbage came out on stage to hug and thank them for a great tour and speak their praises. Shirley is a very big fan of Marissa's, and made that clear throughout the night - including having Marissa come out for a duet on the first song of Garbage's encore, the Smith/Springsteen classic "Because the Night" (video below).
Check out more pictures from the show, Garbage's setlist, and a video from the encore below...

Nick Lowe @ La Zona Rosa - 5/8/2012
Nick Lowe played the second-to-last show of his US tour (in support of his latest album The Old Magic) at La Zona Rosa last night (5/8). He concludes tonight at the Granada Theater in Dallas. After that it's off to the UK, Ireland, and Belgium. Some pictures from the Austin show are in this post.
Keeping Nick company for the May shows is The Autumn Defense - John Stirratt and Pat Sansone of Wilco. They opened, which is a variation from last year's visit where Nick opened for their other band Wilco when they played ACL Live back in December.

Erika of Heartless Bastards @ La Zona Rosa - 4/20/2012
After visiting the new Willie Nelson statue outside the Moody Theater, I walked the few blocks over to La Zona Rosa to see Austin's Heartless Bastards (who played during SXSW and will be at Waterloo Records on 4/25) rock out with David Vandervelde.
