The beach goth aesthetic answers an important question in this brave new world of climate change: how does one wear more clothes at the beach, without looking like a Dad from an L.L. Bean catalogue? The answer is beach goth, the aesthetic step-child of Siouxsie Sioux and David Hasselhoff. Paper Tiger invites its partiers to wear their beachiest, gothiest attire; best-dressed will win two tickets to the inaugural Sound on Sound Fest outside of Austin. For the soundtrack, there’s a little King Pelican for the surf-rock crowd, a little Street Sects for the punks and a little Xander Harris to cast a moody fog over the whole shindig.
