Welcome

Everything about the Goth subculture, dark alternative fashion, and gothic music, film, and literature.

Here Goths of all stripes can create and edit pages of basic information about the people, bands, places, and subjects that are important to our local scenes and the subculture as a whole --topics that might not be "noteworthy" enough for Wikipedia, but that certainly matter to us.

What is Goth?Edit

Goth is a subculture which grew out of the British post-punk scene in the late 70s and early 80s. It is said to be credited to Bauhaus' August 1979 single Bela Lugosi's Dead as fans resonated with the tongue-in-cheek lyrical themes. Goth rock typically uses elements and characteristics of prominent, lead bass; flanging, minimal, textured guitar; 4/4 post-punk, tribal, or drum machine; keyboards in minor key; reverb; baritone or unusually high pitched vocals, and romantic or introspective lyrical themes though themes vary to different bands.
