Garbage at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre tonight (9/16/2012)

Posted By on Sun, Sep 16, 2012 at 8:49 AM

Though Garbage had not made an album in seven years, its frontwoman Shirley Manson’s influence still reverberated through pop music, most notably in the sounds of bands like Metric and the fierce feminine posturings of artists like Lady Gaga. Garbage returned this year with Not Your Kind of People, which is certainly not its best recording to date. But it does signal a return to the stage for the alt-rock icons, meaning fans who’ve been scraping by on the diluted girl-rock power of Manson’s successors can get their first bump of her raw sexuality and stage presence post-Bush Administration. Garbage knows what the people want — some new tunes, yes, but also old favorites to sing along to at top volume — and the band delivers with all of the snarling charisma that made it one of the top acts of the late ’90s. Part of the 106.5 Weenie Roast with The Offspring, Flogging Molly, Coheed and Cambria and more. $20-$70. Sept. 16, 12 p.m. Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, 707 Pavilion Blvd. 704-549-5555.
