Although the show hadn’t sold out, Garbage‘s performance at Summerstage was a treat for all those in attendance. With Kristin Kontrol (Dee Dee from the Dum Dum Girls) as their opener (it was Welchez’s second public New York City performance with the moniker) playing tracks from her debut X-Communicate, Garbage smashed through their catalog including the ’90s classics “Stupid Girl” and “Push It”. But the offerings from their newest album Strange Little Birds were equally as exciting. Lead singer Shirley Manson was everywhere as she belted out “Empty” and “Even Though Our Love is Doomed”. Really though, Garbage brought tons of energy to the stage and ensured their fans that, at over twenty years in, they are not gonna be a nostalgia act any time soon. Check out photos from the show below and additional tour dates from Garbage as well.
