Soundstage is proud to present Garbage. Filmed live at WTTW’s studio in Chicago, their set includes select songs from their repertoire – ranging from its impressive mega-hits to fan favorites.

Garbage was formed in 1993 by consummate producer/drummer Butch Vig and producers/multi-instrumentalists Steve Marker and Duke Erickson. One year later they added the beguiling and sultry Shirley Manson to front the band. Garbage is one of the most respected groups of the ‘90s alterna-scene and its trademark sound aptly marries electronic loops with rock ‘n’ roll. The band’s unique style spurred many other bands to follow suit throughout the 90’s. The new millennium saw two new Garbage albums, 2001’s refined Beautiful Garbage and the long-awaited rocker, 2005’s Bleed Like Me.

The band’s appearance on Soundstage includes many of their early hits like “Queer,” “Only Happy When it Rains” and “Stupid Girl,” along with selections from their latest offering, including the funky “Shut Your Mouth” and stellar songs like “Why Do You Love Me,” the trip-hoppy “Metal Heart” and the catchy rock of “Sex Is Not The Enemy.”
