FOLK | Charming Disaster

by

comment

The murder ballad duo Charming Disaster tells stories of the macabre, exploring grim themes of gruesome mythology, occult folktales, and strange love stories. The Brooklyn-based band's latest album, "Cautionary Tales," is like a musical effigy to Edgar Allan Poe with a spooky cabaret feel. The mischievous, haunting sounds of the ukulele and guitar emphasize the duo's gothic tongue and cheek narratives, which is easily comparable to something Tim Burton and Danny Elfman would have dreamed up.

Charming Disaster will perform Sunday, April 15, at The Spirit Room, 139 State Street. 7 p.m. Free. charmingdisaster.com; facebook.com/TheSpiritRoomRochester.
