I'm pleased to say they seemed like thoroughly nice folks and played a good gig. Proving my lack of musical snobbery (which, to be honest, generally goes with the goth scene), I only knew one song but enjoyed everything they played, from new stuff to old.
The support band was a local act called Painted Heathers who (for me, at least) set the scene nicely and represented an innovative, modern take on the musical theme behind the act they were supporting. Essentially an indie band with goth leanings (I wonder if they agree), they suit my current musical bent (I play keyboards in an indie band) and the mood I was in. They're very new, young, and I shall spread their word for them if I can :)
