I saw Garbage live yesterday (technically today because they played after midnight). Fucking FANTASTIC! I still can't believe how awesome it was!
The sound was a bit distorted at the beginning but improved after few songs. Garbage of course played a mix of some of their best songs. These songs are really powerful live. I was surprised when crowd sang the chorus of Cherry Lips and Only Happy When It Rains. Shirley communicated very well with the audience. I was in the center and under 10m from the stage. Shirley definitely saw me!
The band played for 1h 30 min in total. They also returned for an encore (Supervixen and Only Happy When It Rains).

Review from a Romanian site (they said very kind words about Garbage and this gig):
The only complaint: it was announced a Garbage autograph session for 22:10 but unfortunately the session was canceled. I had a "Version 2.0" album cover with me. Today I found that Garbage had an autograph session but some hours earlier than B'estfest announced: www.infomusic.ro/2012/07/sesiunea-de-autografe-garbage-dinaintea-concertului-vezi-foto/ Damn it!
After the show ended I walked to the stage where the thrash rock band Kreator played. I watched their show for 30 minutes. Very, very heavy and the singer shouted like a maniac. A great surprise: between two of their songs, their singer said with an evil voice something like "it's great to be back in Bucharest and play at this festival with bands like Garbage. They're great but this is metal stage!"
All in all, it was an amazing experience that I will never forget! Thanks Garbage!
