The Georgia Straight presents Garbage at the Centre in Vancouver for Performing Arts
Live Nation has announced that alternative rock group Garbage will perform an all-ages show at the Centre in Vancouver for Performing Arts on Saturday, September 29, in support of its fifth studio album, Not Your Kind Of People.
Consisting of Scottish-born Shirley Manson (vocals, guitar) and Americans Duke Erikson (bass, guitar, keyboards, percussion), Steve Marker (guitar, keyboards), and Butch Vig (drums, percussion), Garbage formed in Madison, Wisconsin in 1994. Achieving success with grungy, hook-driven pop singles like “Stupid Girl” and “Only Happy When It Rains", the group has returned from a seven year absence with Not Your Kind Of People .
Garbage writes: “We quit and went home and built ourselves a life outside of Garbage and outside of music and outside of the rest of the world. Then we got bored of doing that and pretty much began to obsess about making music again. We got together about a year ago now in a small studio in Atwater Village, Los Angeles. There we recorded all of the songs on this new record. We wrote, recorded and mixed it ourselves, old-school style. We are self-releasing it on our own record label STUNVOLUME, new-school style.”
Tickets for the show are priced at $39.50 & $55.00 (plus service charges and fees) and go on sale this Friday (July 13) at 10 a.m. on the Live Nation website.
Tickets are also available for purchase at all Ticketmaster outlets and Rogers Wireless Box Office.twitter.com/vanhappenings
