Garbage-August 31, 2005-The Commodore -Vancouver B.C.

Shirley Manson
Shirley Manson is like a tiger on stage. An easy analogy since she was wearing a tiger striped dress, but more because of the way she paced around the stage like a caged tiger.
It was a huge show in a small venue with a stage/light show (and band) that warranted an arena. It totally justified the $55 ticket price. Wait, that was $55 after Ticketmaster gouged out their share.
This was the second show after the first had sold out quickly, but I wish I had been at the first one. I can only guess at the pandemonia and energy that must have been present at the first show, but this crowd seemed pretty lacklustre.

Despite crowd apathy, the band was incredible. The best show I've been to in long time and I've been to a lot lately including a sleep inducing set by Dinosaur Jr. Garbage proved that you don't have to be 20 to rock.
