#5: Is there a local Goth band or group in your area?
Hah! There isn't even a goth club anymore. Downtown San Jose used to have a fun little goth night on Thursdays called Backlash in the mid-1990s, but it's long gone.
Not that I care much. I'm not really interested in going to clubs or seeing live music anymore. Not my thing -- I'm an old lady and far happier hanging out with friends at my house or theirs, where we can drink not-overpriced cocktails and actually hear each other talk.
Uh... sorry, I can't think of a fave lyric!
#7: Ten of your favourite goth bands.
- The Cure
- Sisters of Mercy
- Love and Rockets
- The Smiths
- Siouxie and the Banshees
- The Mission
- Dead Can Dance
And no quibbles, please, about The Smiths -- the music is so freaking dark, at least lyrically, that it's goth in my book! Also, see Goth Challenge Day 1 to see how it was a influence on my BabyBat days.
