Alt rock band Garbage were one of the bands that seemed to dominate the mid-1990s airwaves, and I was excited to catch them at the Pageant on their 2013 tour. I’d heard mixed reports about the lighting for this tour, but I always like a challenge. Right out of the gates, the production kept me on my toes straight through song three.

Photographer’s Notes:

Cameras Used:

Lenses Used:

For all of Shirley Manson’s rocking frontwoman prowess, I have to say, lead guitarist Duke Erikson was a show stealer. Between Manson and Erikson, this show was fantastically fun to photograph.

Lighting treatment for this show was very dramatic, with lots of high contrast, directional lighting from the sides and back of the stage. The only white lighting came at the beginning of the set, blasting Shirley Manson from either side of the stage in alternating patterns.
