What do you think about goth bands using backing tracks in a crutch-like manner during live shows?

I remember my introduction to the existence of backing tracks. I was at a goth/industrial show and the opening band had to cut their set to about half a song. Because the cd player handling the backing tracks failed. I have seen goth bands tour my city and the first show had a full band. The next show had a missing bassist who had now been absorbed into the backing track. It felt like Alice in Wonderland but lame. Many shows I see people freaking out over are literally just a karaoke show with a keyboard playing single notes.

I understand it isn't easy to tour in this economic climate and make sure everybody gets paid decent, but it's reaching the point where I think the audience have lowered their own standards to accommodate what they are oversaturated with. Curious what other people think based on shows they have been to.

Fan of music, don’t care about fashion

So, i got in a discussion on another goth related forum of "dress codes" at venues. My attitude is "fuck you, i wear what i want, when i want". I'm more into "post punk" in general than strictly goth, and my manner of dress is typically more on the punk side of things or whatever weirdness i'm on at that moment (currently,: tie dye clerical/preist clothing. Im going for psychedelic ufo cult leader)
The issue is some people are pushing harder for dress codes at events and venues. I take serious issue with that. Why should i be obligated to wear certain colors or conform toa certain style of dress, when i only care about the music? I tend to have the urge to do the opposite of what im told, so if im being told i need to wear black, im going to rebell against it beacuse its just my nature. I thought my attitude of "fuck the fashion, its all about the music" would be the more popular, but apprently im in the minority. alot of people responded in favor of it. To me, that just seems hypocritical since this is an alternative subculture that arose put of punk. what does the reddit goth folk think. should one be olbigated to wear black at goth night? what if i WANT to stand out like a sore thumb?

Where can I learn more about goth history?

Hi!

I'm new to goth music and I'm not sure if I can / want to officially call myself a "goth", but I digress; I want to learn more about the history of the goth subculture and what-not. Do you guys have any recommendations? Books, or anything?

Two Books that goes into detail about the Goth Scene in San Diego

Since my first time going to Sabbat back in 2022 to the newer Modern Wav events I am still genuinely surprised on how big the SD Goth Scene, I've made so many friends and while not Goth I enjoy everything from the Music to the Events to The People.

Goth songs about insects and arachnids?

Hello, I run an entomological society and want to play goth music at our events for obvious reasons, does anyone know any goth songs that would be appropriate? We do stuff about any arthropods e.g. moths, lobsters, beetles, scorpions, spiders, bees, horseshoe crabs etc.

I've got some songs here https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7u8ZM2QV0tW0cLNICF64DU?si=a7cec0daf0f94dfa but was looking for more.
