I'm Not Hppy and I'm Not Sad

Gothic Winter Ball • goth, industrial

For at least the past 14 years and probably long before, especially when Pulse was pounding out the hot Burque Goth jams on Thursday nights in Nob Hill—requerdas, Estuardo?—the vibrantly dark local subculture responsible for drenching this town in the blackest of all musical arts has celebrated themselves and the lifestyle they prefer with a traditional Gothic Winter Ball. This year's event happens on Saturday, Feb. 1 at Sister from 9pm in the evening til 1:30am the next morning—with just enough time to get back to the crypt before sunrise. Just kidding. Now, repeat after me: The Cure, Bauhaus, Joy Division, Siouxsie Sioux … For only $10 and a 21-plus ID you're practically guaranteed to get laid, especially if you know the names of any albums by Dead Can Dance and don't forget to touch up that black nail polish and eyeliner, dudes.
