Macabre musical duo Charming Disaster host this new live music series at Brooklyn’s Branded Saloon on third Mondays: Murder Ballad Mondays. This monthly event features an array of local musicians and songwriters presenting their takes on the fascinatingly ghoulish folk music tradition of the murder ballad. Expect originals and covers, old tunes and new twists.

Charming Disaster is the duo project of indie bandleaders Ellia Bisker (Sweet Soubrette) and Jeff Morris (Kotorino). Their tragicomic duets about love, death, crime, and the paranormal explore the different kinds of trouble a couple of people can get into with a ukulele and a guitar. Their song “Ghost Story” was recently featured on the podcast Welcome to Night Vale.

“A place for eclectic artists to prowl around in the darkest corners of the human psyche, pay homage to psychopathic urges in song from across the centuries, and work up new material in that hallowed tradition.” – New York Music Daily

“Morbid monthly show has music to die for…these musicians are killing it!” – The Brooklyn Paper
