SLCene Suggests: Garbage at In The Venue

by on October 3, 2012

GARBAGE, IN THE VENUE, Friday, Oct. 5, 7 p.m., $32.50 advance/$35 at the door

The return of Garbage to the rock scene earlier this year was a pleasant surprise. The band hadn’t released anything new in years, but when Not Your Kind of People arrived, it presented a band that seems like it still has plenty of life. Naturally, singer Shirley Manson remains the focal point, and she’s in fine form on the new songs, delivering them with plenty of attitude and charm. Behind her, the musicians (Duke Erikson, Butch Vig and Steve Marker) are as creatively experimental as ever, crafting solid hooks throughout. With plenty of old hits like “Stupid Girl” and “Only Happy When It Rains” to fill out the set, Garbage’s show at a small place like In The Venue could prove to be one of the best of the year.
