There was a time when goths were castigated. Made fun of. Alienated from mainstream society. These days everyone is into vampires, black and chicks with too much eyeliner. Cue Zola Jesus. The latest queen of the dark scene. After a decade of opera study and a musical awakening involving such varied inspiration as Billboard bubblegum, classical arias, no wave, and industrial, she has developed a gloom-pop sound that will haunt you forever. This time around, goth is here to stay.
