Charming Disaster presents a free concert at Castle Clinton National Monument in NYC's Battery Park on August 25! Brooklyn, NY based musical duo Charming Disaster was formed in 2012 by singer/songwriters Ellia Bisker and Jeff Morris. Inspired by the gothic humor of Edward Gorey and Tim Burton, the noir storytelling of Raymond Chandler, the murder ballads of the Americana tradition, and the dramatic flair of the cabaret, they write songs that tell stories, using two voices to explore dark narratives and characters with a playful sensibility. In their critically acclaimed albums Love, Crime & Other Trouble (2015) and Cautionary Tales (2017), Charming Disaster has explored themes like love, death, crime, myth and folklore, and the supernatural. In their theatrical live performances, they combine vocal harmonies and clever lyrics with ukulele, guitar, and virtuosic foot percussion, drawing listeners into an offbeat universe of paranormal romance, con artists, circus performers, and ancient mythology. Their song “Ghost Story” was featured on the hit podcast Welcome to Night Vale, and they have toured around the United States, playing music venues, festivals, museums, and the occasional historic cemetery. Their concert at Castle Clinton will include historically relevant songs connected with the national monument's fascinating past as a military fort, immigration center, pleasure garden, and NYC aquarium. Admission is free and all ages are welcome. Listen: http://charmingdisaster.bandcamp.com
