Goth ideas for a weekend trip

We're in our late 30's and thinking about a long weekend trip in Nov. or Dec. I've been to NOLA for conventions countless times but my boyfriend's never been. He really enjoys goth culture, industrial and electronic music. Any thoughts on things he would enjoy? I'm a bit of a foodie and would love some ideas around the Garden district since I've primarily stayed by the convention center and french quarter.

Are the haunted and ghost tours really hokie? Any specific companies or tours to go with?

Any clubs/music venues to check out?

Any other recommendations?

Here's an idea-and maybe Rodent will chime in too.


Put goth in the search box and see what comes up.

New Orleans...

I'm afraid you won't find a whole lot. :( I did a similar search for myself and hubby (we're both into electro-industrial) and, considering the Anne Rice/vampire connection, there's surprisingly little scene.

The Dungeon apparently used to have some, but has gone in a different direction. Since it's weekend, 1135 Decatur might be your best bet. It's dead throughout the week but appears to be irregularly open on weekends. We looked in when we were passing it on a September weekend, looked closest to what we were looking for, but weak compared even to Seattle (which isn't necessarily an electro-industrial center of the world, either).

It's by no means Goth, but a cafe you might enjoy the ambiance of is Z'Otz on Oak street. Again, let me stress that you won't hear Goth music there, but there is the "bizzarre mannequins and other random objects everywhere" vibe that you might enjoy. Generally that (the artsy, strange, creative, non-mainstream) is the vibe you are more likely to find.

Now for the less "organized entertainment" stuff that a person of a more Goth persuasion might enjoy, the cemeteries are superb and there are *lots* of them.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
