Truly madly creepy: Charming Disaster’s storytelling songs have been described as macabre folk, but there’s light in the darkness for this Brooklyn duo. Racing through themes of love, death, crime, mythology, and the occult, Ellia Bisker and Jeff Morris enchant listeners with a combination of folk harmonies, smart lyrics, ukulele, guitar, and a sly sense of humor. CD’s low-key fame blew up when their song “Ghost Story” was used in the podcast “Welcome to Night Vale,” and earned them new fans around the globe. They launch the reopening of Blue Moon Diner on a tour stop for their third album, SPELLS + RITUALS.

Thursday, September 26. No cover, 8pm. Blue Moon Diner, 512 W. Main St.
