Goth Gets Boxed

Rejoice mopey rockers. On 9/19, Rhino releases a 3 CD/1 DVD boxed set of goth’s greatest hits.

And Bats Day is only one month away! The FAQ is hilarious.

Q: Is there any kind of dress code?

A: You can dress to impress, but keep in mind that it may be very hot that day. From our previous trips we found out that Disney will not allow capes or fishnet stocking, on guys, to be worn into the park. You can try to wear them in, but keep in mind that you may be asked to take them off and place them back in you car. One of the main reasons that there is a dress code is due to the fact that Disney does not want anyone from the regular visitors mistaken any of us as one of their characters or cast members.
