Bio: The music of Bad Bad Meow has been described using words like “acoustic” and “punk.” The more you listen to this blend of gritty vocals over an acoustic guitar being driven far beyond its intended purpose, the less either of those words seems accurate.
“Open mic nights are interesting. A lot of what’s played is good, but nothing mind-blowing or eyebrow-raising. It’s a great platform for an artist to perform live without the pressure of an actual show, to be able to hone their skill while keeping the bar safe from jukebox trolls. But every once in a while you hear a band that actually stands out, that gets the crowd into it. This is how I became introduced to Bad Bad Meow. Originally from North Carolina, drummer Sarah Sydow, singer/guitarist/evil genius Alen Khan and an ever-rotating cast of characters have been kicking around the Chicago scene for the past couple months. If you drop by the Gallery Cabaret on a Sunday night, odds are you’ll see them perform. I had a chance to talk with Sarah about her musical bond with Alen, silly band names and Meg White. **For the full interview, visit WindyCityRock.Net”
