Thu 11/8 @ 6PM
Goth-style folk cabaret act Charming Disaster, hailing from Brooklyn, New York, is a male/female pair that draws on dark-hued sources to inform their musical narratives of crime, death, love and the supernatural. Swirling around in their musical mix are murder ballads, the stories of Raymond Chandler, the work of Edward Gorey and the films of Tim Burton.
Right now the duo — Ellia Bisker and Jeff Morris — is touring a new single called “Be My Bride of Frankenstein,” which channels a variety of classic goth/gloom pop influences. And they’ll return to Cleveland to perform in the same offbeat location they stopped on their last visit: Lakewood’s Good Goat Gallery. The concert starts at 8pm, but doors open at 6 for a preview of the gallery’s upcoming show Je Suis Amélie, inspired by the 2001 French film Amélie. There will be other preshow activities too, including, we’re told, a “traveling gnome photo op.”
Admission is $10.
