>not posting amy lee
>no goth thread
Never got to be with one but I remember in high school the goth/stoner chicks were some of the cutest girls in school. Though there were a few bitches that were just as cliquey and exclusionary if you weren't one of "them," by and large they were much nicer and more accessible than the princesses.
i got to work as a roadie for a goth band a long time ago, anyone listen to the cruxshadows?
>pic not related
good people, music wasn't entirely my taste but I enjoyed working for them, it did widen my taste in women since I was knee deep in eyeliner and fishnet pantyhose for a few years
NYC shows were always insane, we'd go by trash and vaudeville and get clothes everytime we were there, I think the place we always played at was a 4-5 story nightclub absalon I think
The trend died and most of them grew out of it.
It's sort of coming back now, but it's more "nu goths" than the old 90s-2k goths. Imagine the girls that look like a mix between hipster and goth. That's the 'thing' now.
But there are still goths, just very few and most live in bumfuck nowhere.
It was probably The Batcave. I used to spend a lot of time there. Great people ran the joint.
Maybe there's some hope if a new crop of them hit the city soon. THen again... a lot of the scene revolved around drugs and dominatrixes.
Sometimes I wanna beat their fucking face in, anyone else?
rogue is an awesome guy. and HNNNNNNNG cruxshadow dancers
my bad, didn't they make it down to you guys? , after I left the group I remember they went from a u.s and Europe tour, to a goth cruise in the Bahamas and the MIDI festival in china and played shows in other places as well
>pic is from dragon con in Atlanta
This is basically what a nu goth looks like.
They're like hipster goths. Unlike the older goths they don't really have a certain lifestyle so it's just more of a fashion that they grow out of.
yeah, the batcave, as soon as I read those words I had a little ptsd go off, my 1st time ther the techs wanted to start a rave 1 minute after the band cleared the stage, I had to pack all the gear up with full-on strobe lights,lasers, and the speakers turned up to 11 all going on at the same time, maybe me think about Helen keller at the time lol
looks like dragon con. also looks like before jessica got knocked up
ugh. Awful. Fucking awful. God. Damn it.
Ironically, I wasn't in tech at the time, but I got into it later and do tech as a career now. From a perspective of attendance... the shows at the batcave were great. I saw Switchblade Symphony there in like 97 or 98.
I miss those industrial fetish chicks so damned much.
i never got to see switchblade symphony live. how were they?
I wouldn't be surprised if they have or are pushing at least to do so we played places like monterry Mexico, to Bucharest Romania
Jessica was the big twisted sister I never wanted and never knew I always needed
Like I said, I was nowhere as experienced in showbiz then, as I am now. But to 19 year old me they were alright. It was a pretty simple set. Korg. Playback. Vox. I wish that they didn't dissolve from heroin. If they could have stuck together for a few more years, they could have done something epic. The place was packed for sure.
I literally just posted this to urban dictionary:
Just a bunch of dumb ass beaners with brown skin trying to take another white culture. Many claim the gothic culture originated in England within the 1980s, but this culture and style existed long before. Gothic cultures stem from Nordic people. The Nords are the supreme white race, genetically superior to all other white races.. so looking at these beaners dress up gothic is just laughable.
what do you think /b/?
it should come up under MexiGoth/Mexican Goth
I had few rare good experiences with other stage techs, it was understandable since I was some shmuck that blew in with the band but it was my responsibility to make the show look the way it was supposed to, I watched more than a hundred concerts were bands have to play music with no sound tech to tweak things or a lighting guy to at least add some dynamics to the show
The whole gig was so drastically different then, too. No digital mixers (at least not in any clubs you or I were going to), barely any powered speakers. Errthing was way way way different.
goth pussy is so fucking delicious. that bare, pale bad flesh is to die for, no bad pun intended
they did after Jessica got pregnant. for a while. Hope they come back my way on a tour
all the music and a fair amount of everything else you see is simply the vision of the frontman Rogue, and he in my personal opinion is a man driven to get what he wants, just working with him and his wife Jessica was something I would never trade in this lifetime
anon delivers with a couple more
i find threads like this humorous as they have so few actual goth girls in them
most of these are trendy vampire or trendy domme type pictures ... there must be a new hot topic in town (it used to be a banana republic two weeks ago)
London After Midnight - Black Cat
Poisonblack - With Her I Die
And, if you'd care for some metal:
Seraphim Shock - Little Gothic
Moonspell - Scorpion Flower
Bella Morte - Grey Skies Black
Scene kids took over. Goth became the new emo. Not so much that people aged out of it as it was them being forced out the door due to sheer numbers. No goth wanted show it anymore due to people who couldn't tell the difference between that and an emo. Shit happens. Pretty much the same thing that happened to the old emo scene, which so happens to not even be remotely the same as todays emo. I call them neo-emos
Ever play Gother Than Though? Its a dumb ass Card game ...
There is a card in it ... sitting on a dead lovers grave drinking absinthe ... now a days that's not considered goth ... now it is a cold inartistic image, not a painful lost cry for attention and help like it was when I was a kid
like I said I am old
I've been to sister of mercy concerts, I remember Morriessey splitting from the smiths ... I remember when joy division died and evolved into New Division
don't know the card game, sorry man
but I think there have always been just a few of goth people
I mean, real goth, that knows what it's about
stupid goth people, there's plenty of those, though
and most of them think it's about drinking whine and trying to be dark and shit, pretending they know shit about the victorian era, and being as much retarded as possible
fuck, that's just stupid
that's why I always wanted a goth girl, but they're all kinda stupid
the card game is stupid, it was a mass marketing the idea round 99 or 00 I forget the firs time I saw it
kinda fun looking back on it ...
One card is "Sing This Corrosion" where you have to sing at least four lines from a Sister's of Mercy Song
another is out before Noon where you loose point for being outside in the sun
Most older sub-cultures respond two or more decades later like that are shadows of their former self. I am 45, I remember punk being punk. I some some douche dressed in a black leather with studs and a red-orange mohawk, I damn near crashed my car. He couldn't have been born when punk was punk
some still have an idea though, like this chick
now i have to disagree with you
punks nowadays are almost all shit
but because they turned it into shit, not because they're young
but it's still possible for a 16yo to be a punk
it's just hard, because it'll be an individual kind of shit, it's not like being a punk in the old days because it was kind of common, now it isn't
but the spirit is the same, it's possible
and you guise want real goth?
John Fucking Dowland
I think a punk, like so many of us were where we blurred the lines from one to the other punk and goth ... it was about being original, or at least more original if possible. Recreating a look from 1985 in 2012 is not original, an more then the 90's hippie chicks were original as they hoped they would be.
As I remember it, attitude was as important as clothing. There is so much feel then, I know it was two-thirds BS, every generation has that feel. It just manifests so differently, when its a recreation of something I remember as a kid.
Bit oldschool, but ROCKBITCH!
