This is our 2023 World Goth Day Show, with an emphasis on world because we played goth, darkwave, post-punk, deathrock, etc. bands from all around the world, with an emphasis on lesser-known bands and a mix of recent and older tracks. Each block of the show featured bands/artists from a specific continent. (Sorry, but we left out Antarctica because we don’t know of any bands from there.) We started with Africa, then moved on to Asia, then Australia/New Zealand, and then Europe. The North American block consisted of tracks by bands/artists from Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean. Then we wrapped up the show with a set of bands from South America.

Note: this was a pre-recorded show. I had problems with my microphone so the segues were done by Daniel, from The Uncanny Valley (i.e., the Mac OS speech synthesizer). I used this because the segues wouldn’t have been recorded otherwise.
