Garbage Plays on Jimmy Fallon (Video); Will Webcast NYC Show Tues.

Garbage appeared on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" Thursday night (video below) ahead of the release of its new album on May 22nd. You can see the band performing "Automatic Systematic Habit," which is a free download from iTunes this week (U.S. only).

Shirley Manson and the band will be playing New York's Webster Hall the day that "Not Your Kind of People" comes out, and while the show sold out the day tickets went on sale, it will be webcast live on MTVhive starting at 9 p.m. Eastern time. [Update, May 30: Videos from the Garbage Atlantic City show have been posted here.]

And while Garbage's NYC show is sold out (with tickets going for $95 and more on StubHub), there are still tickets available for the band's Friday night show at the House of Blues in Atlantic City. Not only are the tickets cheaper than the Webster Hall show, since the show is not yet sold out there are tickets selling on StubHub for below face value (as low as $15.00 as of today).

With round-trip bus tickets from NYC to Atlantic City going for $35 or less (often including casino vouchers), you can actually see Garbage in AC for less than in NYC, even including the transportation to and from the show. Hey, who knows, you might even win a few buck at the slot machines. There are much worse ways to kick off Memorial Day weekend.
