Charming Disaster Presents Murder Ballad Mondays
Sep 21, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm| Free
Macabre musical duo Charming Disaster will host a new live music series at Brooklyn’s Branded Saloon starting on September 21: 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.
Artists featured in the September show include Karen Poliski, Susan Hwang, Patricia Santos, Jessica Clinton, Lyndol Descant, and Donald & Lydia.
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.
“Twistedly delicious noir…if you aren’t hooked on this by now, there’s no hope for you.” – New York Music Daily
Monday, September 21, 8-10pm.
