Inside the Batcave and Beyond: Goth Music of the 1980's - Tonight, April 4, 8-10pm

Influenced by the glam and punk movements of the 1970's, post-punk goth rock reflected the emerging goth subculture of the early 1980's. Founding bands included Siouxsie and the Banshees, Bauhaus, The Cure, Alien Sex Fiend, Christian Death, Specimen, etc. The legendary London nightclub, The Batcave, opened in 1982 and would become a center for this new music genre. Goth music encompassed not only gothic rock but also deathrock, darkwave, industrial and new wave music genres. Tune in tonight as we explore 80's goth on WXDU's College Radio Primer from 8-10pm.
