As for a lot of other places in the world the gothic community communicates by flyers. By using this way of communication you will be kept updated of the upcoming concerts and parties. Indeed, some events are promoted only through this mean.
In order to find those flyers you will have to go to the shops, bars and restaurants which are underground incline. So as to find them I recommend you to take a look at the Goth in Paris: Bars and Restaurants, Special Events and Miscellaneous and Buy clothes sections. They will also be distributed during concerts and parties.
However, using flyers implies to move to get them, and the places where you can get them are often away from each other.

Toile Gothique is a forum. Unfortunately it is in French, but it doesn’t have to be a constraint. You just have to go to “Bric-à-brac” (jumble in English) then to “Sorties et évènements” (outings and events in English). The members of the forum post news about the next parties, concerts and exhibitions in Paris but also in other regions of France. Take the opportunity to discuss with people and make friends.
