Garbage: Fillmore, San Francisco

Clare Kleinedler, Addicted To Noise, May 1996

That name is like the ACME of all band names...like you could completely see Angela of My So Called Life telling her mom that she's gonna go see a "rock band called Garbage," and then of course, it would be followed by her mother's rolling eyes and a comment like, "Oh, kids today." Then Angela would get that oh-so-misunderstood-Gen X look on her face and sulk right out of the house and into the arms of the "I'm-an-idiot-but-my-hair-looks-cool" Jordan Catolano.
