Garbage played to a sold-out crowd at the Lincoln Theatre Sunday, gracing us with the first of two nights of the Version 2.0 20th anniversary tour. This tour celebrates the multi-platinum selling and Grammy-nominated album that saw Garbage as one of the top alternative rock bands in the world.

Garbage is celebrating 20 years of Version 2.0, their influential second album, with a new remastered edition and a tour. That tour lands at The Lincoln Theatre in DC for two nights. The first night sold out fast, but tickets are still available for Garbage’s concert on Monday, Oct. 22.

Not long ago, Shirley Manson hailed a cab in New York City. The frontwoman for the band Garbage was preparing to approach the cab when another woman zipped by her and into the car.
Amused, Shirley introduced herself to the cab jumper to realize the woman was Kristin Welchez, formerly of the Dum Dum Girls. The two became fast friends, Shirley explained at the Lincoln Theatre Wednesday night, and Garbage invited Kristin to open for them on their US tour, the first leg of which wrapped up in DC on August 3.
