Garbage / Torres @ Kings Theatre 10/24/2015
I’m not sure that I’m very mature, actually. I wish I was. [Laughs.] You know, I think when you do something for long enough, and when you put in the work and all the hours, and you do it for the sake of doing it as opposed for any other sort of external affirmation or praise or attention; when you just simply do something for a long time, you create a basis which you can stand. As an artist that is a good privilege. To create your own solid ground is phenomenal, and I certainly didn’t have that in 1995, and it took me a long time to even get to a point where I felt like an artist. I didn’t even feel like a musician for a decade, and yet I’d been making music since I was fifteen. I mean, that’s really fucked up. [Laughs.] But then eventually I did it long enough, and with that experience comes confidence, and that changes how you relate to music, and how you relate to the world. It becomes a prism through which you can see everything. – [Shirley Manson in BV interview]
After playing The Space at Westbury, Garbage brought their 20th Anniversary tour to Brooklyn on Saturday (10/24) for a show at Kings Theatre. Their tourmate Torres opened the night and more pictures are below.
