Batcaver seems to be an old localized term for goth. It was used in the Pacific Northwest in the 80s but on the East coast, few people have heard the term. The singular batcave was also used.
I went to a Bauhaus concert last week and it was full of batcavers.

A fan of death rock. Not a goth, it's more like the step between punk and goth. The term comes from the name of a club, the Batcave.
