Garbage invades Toronto

Memorial Day in Toronto. Garbage. A stadium-calibur band in an intimate, standing-room-only club. Spent the day outside the venue, and for our efforts, were the third and fourth people into the venue, which positioned us directly in front of Shirley Manson.

More my kind of day than Shaun’s kind of day, but when Garbage came out, before the first song ended, he confessed that being where we were was worth the entire day spent outside the club. A more aggressive crowd than the crowd in Boston, but a more energetic show.

Technical problems at one point left Shirley with time to get several members of the audience to introduce themselves and tell where they are from. A couple of different songs than the set we got in Boston, but I could hear the same set every night and not get tired of it.

After, before Shaun and I got home from Toronto, Shirley, in a Tweet, called the show “off the chain” which it was. TWINE, at the end of the set, is the band’s James Bond theme: The World Is Not Enough.
