CHARMING DISASTER, formed in 2012 by Brooklyn-based singer/songwriters Ellia Bisker and Jeff Morris, perform playfully dark original songs inspired by death, crime, myth, magic, science, and the occult. Channeling the macabre humor of Edward Gorey and Tim Burton, the murder ballads of the Americana tradition, and the dramatic flair of the cabaret, they explore dark subjects with a whimsically macabre sensibility. The duo’s comedic, theatrical performances are interactive experiences that are part concert, part fortune-telling ritual, and part vaudeville show. 

“Charming Disaster are unusual, spooky, wickedly talented, and completely unafraid to delve deep into the underworld in exploration of all things lurking in the dark...they have a knack for making the macabre fun." –Mixed Alternative

A faerie-tale fusion of dark cabaret and gothic polka music, Dust Bowl Faeries is an accordion-driven freak folk band from the New York Hudson Valley. The band’s eclectic repertoire draws inspiration from post-punk, murder ballads, circus songs and Eastern European folk music. Singing saw, piano accordion and  guitars blend to create the Dust Bowl Faeries otherworldly sound. Dust Bowl Faeries was founded by Ryder Cooley (faerie queen) and her taxidermy spirit animal, Hazel the Ram.

Legendary singer-songwriter/cellist MELORA CREAGER is the founder of the cello rock band Rasputina. Melora has released numerous albums via her own label, Filthy Bonnet, and with Columbia Records. Over the years she has performed/recorded with the likes of Nirvana, Marilyn Manson, Siouxsie Sioux and Voltaire. Melora will be joining Dust Bowl Faeries on cello on July 28th.
