I Was There
Thursday, October 26th, 2017
4:00 PM
3MT Venue
Manchester, United Kingdom
Join music and gothic culture aficionados John Robb (Membranes, Louder Than War) and Dr Claire Nally (Northumbria University) for a full and frank discussion on the Gothic past and Goth in the 21st Century.
Find out what John has learned from researching his forthcoming book on Goth music and fashion history and hear how Gothic literature and films connect to street style and pop culture.
Does the ubiquity of Gothic style in everything from Alexander McQueen to All Saints mean that Goth has lost its dark edge and ability to express alienation? O does the massive popularity of shows like The Walking Dead and Penny Dreadful indicate that the Gothic sensibility has a special place in these post- hope, post-truth times? And what of phenomena such as happy-Goth, pastel-Goth and even ‘health-Goth’? Is goth thriving or is Goth finally dead?
Further Gothic guests tbc!
