San Diego has a legendary crop of goth nights, but without the lure of that dimly lit dance floor and a chance to wear more eyeliner than you've ever before dared, virtual goth night versions have a lot to measure up to.

The Casbah might just be up to the task. Combining DJ sets with a live band performing from the empty venue, Friday's event promises to be a more robust version of their relatively brief livestreamed shows. DJs Vaughn Avakian and Camilla Robina will spin the goth jams and locals The Passengers will perform a set of their ultra-dark, post-punk music. The band just released a brand new track on a compilation by Southern California-based Volar Records that benefits trans housing relief. The song is called "Until the World Falls Apart," and you can listen here. Ah, timely.

So tune in to Twitch, dim the lights and go ahead, wear your best goth makeup.

Details: Friday at 8:30 p.m. Livestreamed from the Casbah via Twitch.
