    Blondie, Shirley Manson perform together in LA

    Blondie and Shirley Manson of Garbage were among the artists performing for an invited audience at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles. At this fifth annual "WomenRock!" concert, Debbie and Shirley did a duet, covering Wayne Wonder's "Bounce Along", and Blondie performed three more songs (with Shirley again joining in for the closing number). The event, taped last night and scheduled to air on October 28 on Lifetime, celebrates the women's cable network's 20th anniversary and the 10th anniversary of its public awareness campaign "Our Lifetime Commitment: Stop Breast Cancer for Life."

    Billboard.com has an online article about the event.
