Just bought tickets to see Sisters of Mercy, I have never been to any kind of concerts before, what can I expect?

Hello friends! I saw that SoM is having a concert near me in October, and bought the “Floor – General Admission Standing” tickets on a whim. I’ve seen this sub making fun of SoM’s concerts, but I don’t mind a “crappy” performance. It’ll be nice to still see them before they retire.

I have never experienced the music scene. I’m in my mid 20s, and this is going to be my first concert. I don’t have friends to go with me or give me guidance, so I wanted to turn to this sub for help!

  1. The location is at San Francisco The Masonic, what can I expect? Is it huge and easy to find?

  2. What does “Floor – General Admission Standing” tickets entail outside of its name?

  3. How can I better prepare myself? I’m probably going to be taking the Bay Area Transportation System so I don’t have to worry about parking

  4. Do people dress up at SoM concerts?

  5. Is going alone as a 25 year old female poc safe?

Many many thanks in advance!!

Hot take: goth hasn’t become mainstream. Our algorithms are just goth.

I see this complaint all over social media that goth has become mainstream, that everyone is goth now, that there’s so many goth young people etc… and it always inevitably leads to people trying to compare individuals as to who’s “more goth” based purely on appearances. But I just don’t think that’s happening at all. Maybe alternative fashion and music is on the rise, but I just don’t see that many truly goth/alternative people when I’m going about my day to day life.

That being said, I do think post punk music has been “mainstream” for a long time. Just look at the streaming statistics for popular 80’s post punk bands. But if you look for people that live and eat and breathe the goth lifestyle and who listen mostly to post punk/goth music, I still don’t think it’s that popular. It’s just all over social media because if you’re goth, you’re likely interacting with goth content.

any songs/albums that just have a deep sense of existential dread or horror?

i love the sound of a lot of goth music but i struggle to find songs with lyrics that really speak to me. i’m thinking something along the lines of, say… megalomania by muse, do you doubt me traitor by lingua ignota, climbing up the walls by radiohead… that kind of vibe. i like really gritty, bone-chilling music as well— stuff that doesn’t hold back and kind of just shows someone… spiraling into despair and anger, i guess? if you know anything like that lmk for sure 🙂

Really cool lowkey artist I found called Tsaffire! Not sure if all their stuff is in this YouTube playlist but regardless it will give you an idea. I think I just found a hidden gem.

Just something on my mind

Yesterday in my philosophy class the theme of metal and goths and emos came up. We got deeper into the topic and there’s an activist in my class who asked questions relating to the work and i explained that most of my research and people ive talked to have said that being goth means more in personality and if you like the music. Then you are goth (correct me if im wrong im more recent).

He started to bring up how the scene is racist and perdominantly white. I said yes that’s true but there’s no place for racism in punk, metal, emo, goth spaces. If there are goth people who are racist, they aren’t goth they’re just appropriating and wouldn’t be accepted by anyone but those alike, it completely defeats the purpose of those genres.

I live in a city where our goth count is very, very low lol. Our metal scene is pretty loyal but i have a hard time finding goths here. And as far as i know you don’t have to look any kind of way to be a goth, but sure there is a theme among the most of us which is anything black.

I have always been “darker” in character and goth doesn’t run in my family at all. I’m an African American male from a high crime rate city. I am the first to be, compared to anyone i’ve grown up with. It’s hard to be alone but hopefully i’ll be able to travel and visit places where i can feel welcomed.

I say all this to say thank you to those of you in this sub who are so open about everything. And fuck whoever taints the image of these communities 😉 Thank you if you’ve read, just wanted to vent i guess.

We just released our debut album and would love to hear from you!

Hi everyone! Our cold-wave/post-punk duo Ostatnia Klatka have just released a debut album and started touring in Poland.

Freezing cold guitars, gloomy vocals, bass that could rearrange your room, synths straight from the 80s. We sing about living in Eastern European city, about our fears, about our lives.

That's what we wanted to say about ourselves, but tbh we would love to hear what YOU think about our first album. Your feedback would be much appreciated!

Here we picked some songs that are a good overview of our music, but we really encourage you to check the whole thing as it's quite diverse – and say a word or two what you think abuut it :).

Urobor – our goth side

do people actually think that goth music is just screaming?

i’ve seen quite a few people online talking about people thinking goth music is just screaming and i don’t understand why anyone would think that. if people DO really think that, what gave them that idea?

Does goth music do this for you too or am I just weird?

I have this weird thing about my brain where listening to darkwave, coldwave, and etherealwave helps my brain focus. Its the most effective thing at regulating me emotionally, calming/relaxing me, helping me concentrate/focus, and soothing my bodys adrenaline response(ptsd symptoms). It clears up brain fog pretty effectively, too. Helps me process information as well/helps my memory.

I've never ever heard of gothic genres as helping someone that much(mentally, emotionally) just by their sound alone(compared to classical). It doesn't matter what the lyrics are, just the sound alone massively helps me emotionally and mentally. When I'm upset, hurting, anxious, scared, in fight or flight, nervous system dysregulated, just listening to the genre for about 20 min fixes everything. You'd think that listening to "depressing/melancholy" music would make things worse , but it does quite the opposite! I'd go so far as to say it's comforting.

All the things people say about how good classical music is for your brain is exactly all the things darkwave/coldwave/etherealwave does for me for some reason. Meanwhile classical doesn't do much to help me.

Is it because my brain really fucks with the music in particular or do you think there's a specific reason why it'd help so much?

Additionally, does anyone else have this too with a goth genre? Or is my brain just a special breed
