It’s been 20 years since Garbage dropped their sophomore album, 1998’s Version 2.0. But there was hardly any dust in the air at Chicago’s Riviera Theatre on Wednesday night as Shirley Manson and Butch Vig’s blockbuster outfit revisited the album in full.

Similar to their recent tour surrounding the anniversary of their self-titled debut, this run finds the group eschewing any nostalgia in favor of unbridled angst and feverish energy, the kind often reserved for youngsters who’ve just left the garage.

Senior photographer Heather Kaplan covered it all. Peruse her gallery of photos below and consult the night’s full setlist shortly after. As you’ll see, they even revisited their Bond theme and their covers of Big Star and The Seeds.
