Already sick of "Jingle Bell Rock" and the Wham! Christmas song? I know I am. Following in the footsteps of the great holiday-saving underdogs, like Rudolph and Cindy Lou Who, comes Brickbat Mansion with seasonal songs that aren't overdone, our warming mix of shoegaze, ethereal, gothic and post-punk music, and a fresh version of our holiday compilation CD as a gift for you!

Tomorrow at the Lovecraft, 10 p.m., and free! Wassail!

THE OLD LADY WHO INVENTED GOITH – the debut novel from Mick Mercer

Having written about Goth since it began, with a past in fanzines (starting in 1976) and music journalism, I guess it isn’t surprising what lies at the heart of my first novel, THE OLD LADY WHO INVENTED GOTH, but this is not a typical book. For a start the first edition is illustrated in a new way for a novel, while the story is a prequel to what we know and understand. 100 years ago Hermione M. Lee wanted what we have now, but it simply didn’t exist. As she was just fourteen, and a surprisingly foul-mouthed child, with The Great War brewing quietly in the distance there wasn’t a great deal she could do about it, or anything. That never stopped her trying, from the moment she found creativity crackling beneath her fingernails and in a busy life Hermione was rarely inert for long. A champion of darkness, and yet a vanquisher of gloom, Hermione M. Lee is a Gothic blueprint in action, living a life steeped in sin and intrigue, but justifiably so.

21 & OVER - $5.00 COVER

316 SW 11TH AVE

Vancouver-based machine rock outfit Stiff Valentine formed in 2003 around the talents of industrial music producer "Loud" Chris DeMarcus and guest members from a plethora of industrial rock bands; Front Line Assembly, 16volt, Sounds of Mass Production, Chemlab, Dismantled, Landscape Body Machine, and Left Spine Down, to name a few. The underground supergroup's volatile but groove-heavy debut, Industrial Metal Disco, was released in 2009, followed by their latest release America Bleeding in 2011, produced by Chris Peterson (Front Line assembly, Delerium, Unit 187).

SV tackles dance floors and mosh pits alike with heavy riffs, thumping beats, throat-tearing vocals and its not-so-secret weapon: a sense of humor. Don't be surprised if you see 'em screaming through loudspeakers outside of a closed-down night club in Albuquerque, New Mexico, or banging out thrash riffs in a snow castle near Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. Known for their explosive live shows, they live up to their title of The Second Best Canadian Band, Ever
