Earlier this year, the Brooklyn-based folk-noir duo Charming Disaster [pictured] came to Cleveland for the first time and performed at the Euclid Tavern with local author Brandy Schillace.

The band’s songs address themes like love, death, crime, ancient mythology and the occult, and the group cites the gothic humor of Edward Gorey and Tim Burton, the noir fiction of Raymond Chandler, American murder ballads and the “dramatic flair” of the cabaret as inspirations.

Now, the group has just announced it plans to return to town on Aug. 10 to perform at Good Goat Gallery in Lakewood. It'll share the bill with the local vaudeville duo Pinch & Squeal, a group that offers a modern take on old-time comedic performance.

"We pride ourselves on singing songs you wish you didn't know and jokes you wish you didn't laugh at, and doing really bad magic," says Pinch in a press release announcing the gig.

The show will start at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10.
