Today’s featured event:
Hear Tyson Meade of Chainsaw Kittens fame at 9 tonight and 2 a.m. Sunday at VZD’s Restaurant & Club, 4200 N Western.
For the rare home-state performance, Meade will be playing with original Kittens guitarist Mark Metzger for the first time in 19 years, and spreading the word about his plans to record an album in China with Chinese and American musicians, reports The Oklahoman Entertainment Editor Gene Triplett.
“For five years I lived in China, in Shanghai, and the last three of those five years I was running a boarding school and I’ve fallen in love with China,” the singer/songwriter/guitarist/educator told Gene in a recent interview.
“China loves America, loves Americans, and everyone was so good to me there.”
Meade plans to finance the recording and distribution of the album through Kickstarter, with Oklahoma-bred filmmaker Bradley Beesley (“Okie Noodling,” “Sweethearts of the Prison Rodeo”) directing a video promoting the campaign.
