Through her thickly framed glasses, Dark Dark Dark's frontwoman Nona Marie Invie seems to view the world with melancholy. Despite often being supported by a half-dozen other members, there's a pervading sense of loneliness through her band's catalog of old-timey chamber-folk tunes. Using the natural acoustics of an accordion, stand-up bass, banjo and cello, the dour collective definitely knows how to find the touches of beauty in life's little miseries and heartaches. On the road supporting its recently released EP, “Bright Bright Bright,” Dark Dark Dark is scheduled to perform at Cous Cous on Friday, March 26, at 10 p.m.
