Garbage in Atlantic City

It's not all about Beyonce in Atlantic City this weekend.

Garbage in Atlantic City


It's not all about Beyonce in Atlantic City this weekend. Okay, maybe it is. But there are a lot of other name-brand acts playing down the shore this Memorial Day weekend, besides Mrs. Jay-Z at the brand new Revel casino. Like Pitbull at the Borgata tonight, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes at the Tropicana on Saturday and comedian Kevin Hart at the Etess Arena at the Trump Taj Mahal on Sunday. 

Tonight, though, the House of Blues has Garbage, the Shirley Manson-fronted Butch Vig-featuring band that I once described as "bubble grunge" way back in the day. They've got a new album out called Not Your Kind Of People which is their first snce 2005's Bleed Like Me. Steve Klinge wrote a preview of tonight's show in today's Inquirer Wkened section here. The band as they appear today is on the left. "Only Happy When It Rains," the big, still great sounding radio hit from the band's 1995 self-titled debut, is below.
