Gothic Music: Post-Punk, Darkwave, Deathrock and More... - For All Those Gloomy Souls Out There

Moist as a snack cake.
If any of you ever have the chance to see Swans live, DO SO because you'll never forget the experience. I saw (what I thought) was one of their last shows in 1997 and the bass was so loud that my entire body vibrated. It was almost a spiritual experience, and I met Eva O (Super Heroines/Christian Death/Shadow Project) and hung out with her so that was an added bonus. Also, go see whatever Dinah Cancer from 45 Grave is up to, because she is a lot of fun.
