I grew up in the ’80s thinking that goth music was really a form of tragically inclined electro dance music led by wan humans wearing black clothes, white powdery faces, heaps of hairspray and boots to stomp the shit out of barefoot hippies they might meet hanging out at the local drug house: They also sang songs about the sadness of the week going by, how much they regretted drowning their lovers—either emotionally or in reality—and how occult and mysterious sex in dark could be. As the years have drawn on and on, I’ve come to realize that I was mostly right. To prove this point, I did some research on a most excellent neo-goth band, The Birthday Massacre, that is playing a concert on Saturday night, Oct. 6 at Launchpad (618 Central Ave. NW). Sure enough this Canadian quintet wears their collectively dark heart upon their atrementous sleeve. With dank yet ritualistically danceable tuneage like “Counterpane” and “Hex” at their beck and call, listeners can be assured an authentic gothic experience, not unlike the rapturous nights experienced at Burque’s Pulse Nightclub on Thursday nights, circa 1999. Tampa, Fla., electro-dance-vampires Ghostfeeder open the crypt on the night in question. Go to this show; it’ll be just like heaven! 9pm • $20 • 13+.]
