Watch out, America! Royal Flush’s New York-based concert photographer hit the road, pulling into Chicago’s Riviera Theatre for Garbage’s 20 Years Queer tour. Yes, Shirley Manson has been making boys (and some girls) come of age for two decades, and she is still every bit of the super vixen since seducing the masses in the video for “Vow” back in 1995.
Make no mistake, Garbage is a band, with each member contributing song writing and being masters as their craft, but, man, Manson, she’s just… OK, breath. Relax.
And the significance of the show in Chicago? Well, this is where the band formed, and the 1,100 packed house took in each note of the two hour, 22 set of hits and rarities that the band recorded in ’95 and ’96.
Dark and powerful, Torres opened up the evening, which is great, because she released one of the best albums of 2015.
