Club venues in L.A. have a form of multiple personality disorder. Bringing in outside promoters is the norm for most these days--Tuesday's gay dance club is a hip-hop hang on Wednesday and a glam-rock shindig on Friday. It's easier for new venues--places without their own identity--to transform themselves each night. But imagine a 73-year-old bar trying to hold onto its long established reputation and atmosphere while seeking an updated, new image.

A pink-haired drag queen scattered rose petals before the bride as she glided toward the altar, looking every inch the goth princess -- vampy eyes, raven bouffant, black lace gown and black Dutch rose nosegay. She swooshed with funereal drama past her guests -- burlesque diva Dita Von Teese, pop surrealist Mark Ryden and Bauhaus drummer Kevin Haskins among them. Waiting at the altar was her dapper, inky-haired groom.

A hard rock band can be judged by the company it keeps. In its fourth outing leading its Projekt Revolution Tour, Linkin Park has this time chosen darkness over rage, gloom over volume, goth over rap-metal. The band's sound hasn't changed, only the context, sharing Saturday's tour stop at the Hyundai Pavilion in Devore with the musical vampires of My Chemical Romance, Placebo, HIM and others. Linkin Park has never been goth itself.

Bauhaus is back, darker and bigger--and happier--than ever. With brooding, unsettling slabs of sound, the quartet ushered in the Goth-rock underground that formed in England around 1979. Edgy and experimental, Bauhaus was a key source of inspiration for a number of gloomy bands to follow, including Nine Inch Nails, Sisters of Mercy, the Cult and, yes, Marilyn Manson. Bauhaus, however, never developed beyond a cult following.

IF timing is everything, you can't do much better than having a reunited Bauhaus coming to town on Halloween weekend. The English band established itself as a cornerstone of goth rock with its haunting, hypnotic first single, 1979's "Bela Lugosi's Dead" (in which about half of the lyrics are either "Bela," "Lugosi" or "dead").

There's no doubt that Kristen Lemberg has the ability to tantalize with her movement vocabulary. From hieroglyphic-like friezes and frenzied tribal tripping to mad spinning and isolated shoulder-shimmying, the girl would fit in at any headbanger rave. What Lemberg lacks, however, are potent enough acting or writing chops to sustain a 65-minute evening.

There's nothing like a little harp music to soothe jangled nerves. Popular at weddings, funerals and not a few brises, the age-old instrument, with its sensual curves and ethereal-sounding glissandi, not only has an aristocratic air but also seems an anachronism in today's techno-obsessed world. That image, however, gets a makeover with the, shall we say, unconventional cabaret act known as "Dueling Harps."

Sometimes a band will sneak up on you. Take the Finnish goth-metal act HIM, the subject of a dedicated international fan cult and proclaimed by metal magazine covers everywhere as the next new thing, even if those honors are hardly justified by the band's tepid recorded work. Turns out the reasons are easily found at HIM's live show.

Balance is the key, stresses Thousand Oaks High girls' volleyball Coach Ron Beick. The Lancers have it. With two 6-foot-1 middle blockers--twin sisters Janie and Carrie Penfield--and bookend outside hitters Megan Falde and Keri Wetzsteon, their offense is diffuse and effectively diverse. Buena, on the other hand, relies primarily on one player, middle blocker Rene Goth. Guess which team won?
