On Sunday, Garbage and Blondie will storm Chastain Park Amphitheatre with a double bill stocked with hits.
But earlier in the day, Garbage – Shirley Manson, Duke Erikson, Steve Marker and Butch Vig – will swing by Criminal Records in Little Five Points for a book signing.
The band recently released “This is the Noise That Keeps Me Awake,” an autobiographical coffee table book that includes rare photos of the band and pieces written by each member.
Those who didn’t already pre-order the book and receive a wristband must purchase “This is the Noise…” at Criminal Records to attend the signing, which will take place from noon to 2 p.m. Fans can purchase until Sunday (Criminal Records will open at 10 a.m. for walk-up sales and pre-order pick up). Each book comes with one wristband.
Garbage’s show with Blondie (and opener Deap Valley) begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25-$75 and available at www.livenation.com.
