BIRMINGHAM, Ala.- The Murder of Jane Crow, an eclectic Goth group based in Birmingham, will perform a free concert this Thursday, July 27 at 6:30 p.m. at the Springville Road Regional Library, 1224 Old Springville Road.

An Evening With The Murder of Jane Crow is the musical finale celebration of dozens of free activities Springville Road Library hosted as part of its 2017 Summer Reading programs. Across the city, the Birmingham Public Library (BPL) held over 500 Summer Reading activities for kids, teens and adults.   

The Murder of Jane Crow was featured by as its Band of the Week earlier this year. See article at this link:

In the article, writer Tre Brannum said lead singer Jane Crow has assembled a "Dream Team" of the most elite, female musicians in town, to create a magical, other worldly, sound. The band mixes equal part old gypsy and cabaret, and new age folk and European, all with a pop sensibility. As stated, the music this group performs can't be placed in any category.”

PERFORMANCE is the only word that can be used to covey the "Murder" experience. The band prides themselves on setting the vibe of the old world traveling gypsy stage shows. The band can be seen milling around the crowd before shows, in their signature plague masks, preparing in the crowd for their intense live performance. Brannum continued, saying the singers in The Murder of Jane Crow “each find their space, and create a sort of swirling effect, whimsically escorting the audience to another time and place. McFarland's viola accompaniment adds the final touch to this truly unique music.”

Come see the Murder of Jane Crow perform in person this Thursday, July 27 at the Springville Road Library. 

The Murder of Jane Crow is: Jane Crow - lead vocals & piano; Jane Grace - backing vocals, guitar, banjo, percussion; Mollie McFarland - electric viola, backing vocals.
