Charming Disaster & The Fremonts



The Red Lion Inn (30 Main St, Stockbridge, MA , Stockbridge MA)

We're teaming up to bring you a delicious evening of Charming Disaster's “heavily melodic folk music that is goth as hell" (Impose) and The Fremonts' "dark, witty, and unique original music" (The Reviews Hub UK).

Join us in the cozy Lion's Den at The Red Lion Inn on Friday, 3/10 at 7pm for a romp with musical duos from Brooklyn and the Berkshires.

Charming Disaster:

Brooklyn, NY-based musical duo Charming Disaster performs playfully dark original songs inspired by death, crime, myth, magic, science, and the occult, inspired by the macabre humor of Edward Gorey and Tim Burton, the murder ballads of the Americana tradition, and the dramatic flair of the cabaret. In their live performances, they combine vocal harmonies and clever lyrics with ukulele, guitar, and virtuosic foot percussion, drawing listeners into a haunting, offbeat universe of paranormal romance, con artists, circus tents, and ancient gods.

Charming Disaster’s music has been featured on the spooky hit podcast Welcome to Night Vale, they have opened for legendary cello-rock ensemble Rasputina, goth icon Voltaire, and Amanda Palmer’s punk cabaret duo The Dresden Dolls. The duo have captivated audiences across the United States,appearing alongside storytellers, comedians, fire eaters, puppets, burlesque artists, poets, and circus performers. Recent appearances have included Joe's Pub at the Public Theatre in NYC, the Rochester Fringe Festival, Philadelphia’s Science History Institute, the Edgar Allan Poe Museum in Richmond, VA, Cleveland's Wizbang Circus Theatre, and the Coney Island Sideshow stage.

Their latest album, Super Natural History, is a musical cabinet of curiosities inspired by both the natural world and the metaphysical realm, uniting the worlds of magic and science with songs that explore subjects like witchcraft, monsters, and the underworld alongside bats, plants, poisons, and parasites. Super Natural History is an alchemical experiment of sorts—magic and science may seem like contradictory concepts, but for Charming Disaster they are opposite sides of the same coin: alternate ways to see the world and consider its mysteries.

The Fremonts:

Born in New York City and raised in Boulder, CO, The Fremonts create unique theatrical experiences for their audiences by blending americana music and storytelling with a cabaret aesthetic. Stephanie Dodd (originally from Fremont, Nebraska - vocals/accordion) and Justin Badger (originally from Fremont, California - vocals/guitar) present their original music with performance skills honed from years of working as professional actors.
