Garbage at the Ogden Theatre, 10/6/12


After opening the show with a vigorous take on "Automatic Systematic Habit," and then following with the equally charged up "I Think I'm Paranoid" and "Shut Your Mouth," Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson was greeted by a blast of applause from the sold out frenzied crowd at the Ogden Theatre. Manson said it had been a long time coming. Not only had it been seven years since the band's last tour, but also the Ogden show was postponed about five months. "Let me just assure you that we are so much tighter than when we first started out," Manson said. "So I think it all worked for the best."
