GPKISM Industrial Dance video, with Tank9 & Mary, to help Japan. Dances of Vice and NYC Goth parties.
Monday, March 26th, 2012 by La Carmina
La Carmina & friends have released our Industrial Goth dance video for Japan! We hope you’ll take a moment to watch it below and on YouTube (a Like/Share is always appreciated). Our team worked hard on this good cause, and we’re grateful for your support.
On the anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami (March 11, 2012), La Carmina, tank9, Mary Nine, and GPKism filmed a dance video — a tribute to Japan’s vibrant underground culture.
All day long in Seattle, we raised awareness and collected donations. Our video captures the immense positivity and energy of youths teaming up for an important cause.
The song, “Iudicium” is kindly provided by GPKism, a Japanese Industrial Goth band that was put on hiatus because of the earthquake. This video participates in the Ridley Scott and Fuij TV “Japan in a Day” project (full details here).
See more photos & read about the project on La Carmina blog. Thanks for your support!

Back to New York City… The best Gothic / retro fashion is found at Dances of Vice, an event run by my friend Shien Lee. On Valentine’s Day, the theme was “La Vie Parisienne: Bal de la Saint-Valentin.”
The evening featured can-can girls, burlesque, a dancing mime, a live orchestra, and plenty of dark retro clothing from centuries past. More photos here.
What are your favorite Goth haunts in NYC? Seattle? Your own hometown? One day, I’ll visit them all! Stay tuned to La Carmina to see where I’m headed next, on my Global Gothic travels.
