If modern-day Goth-dom had a birthplace I would have to say it was England, probably somewhere on the streets of London. Now the home of Whitby welcomes back it's childe to celebrate for the weekend.
Seems the Noth Yorkshire town of Whitby hosts the Whitby Goth Weekend twice a year, this year its April 27 & 28 and then again in October on the weekend of the 26th & 27. Last years events included a Church service by the Rev. Marcus Ramshaw, who is a goth himself.
This years bands include:
FRIDAY - The Last Dance, Soho Dolls, Dust, Razorblade Kisses
SATURDAY - Cruxshadows, Bella Morte, Machinegun Symphony, Rome Burns
