Marcy Mays (Scrawl/"My Curse" vocalist) will be opening the Surly Girl Saloon in Columbus, OH. The live music venue and bar will have a distinct look and attitude.

When Marcy Mays was her partner’s age she was touring the world in her band Scrawl. This matriarch of Columbus-based grunge rock has pledged that the backroom will have “more black, skulls and flames” than the front of the restaurant, and it will become a space to develop talent that doesn’t draw large crowds.

“I was looking for a place where you could have music, not just having it all about the money-making thing … someplace to take chances,” said Mays. “If a band can’t draw 150 people, there are no options [for bigger clubs to make a profit].”
