The Brooklyn-based folk-noir duo Charming Disaster will come to Cleveland for the first time on Friday, April 20, to present a unique evening of music and forensic science lectures at the Euclid Tavern with local author Brandy Schillace.

A historian and author, Schillace, who works at the Dittrick Medical History Center and has appeared on the Travel Channel’s Mysteries at the Museum, will discuss forensics during Cleveland's pre- and post-prohibition years.

Given the subject of the lecture, it makes sense Charming Disaster would also be on the bill. The band’s songs address themes like love, death, crime, ancient mythology and the occult. The band 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. Its paranormal love song, “Ghost Story,” was even featured on podcast Welcome to Night Vale.

The event will also include a "guess the murderer" game. It all starts at 7 p.m., and admission is free.
