Immediately after Washington’s 2011 SXSW set in Austin Texas, Billabout met lead singer Megan Washington backstage for an interview. When we told her that we needed a quiet and well lit space, she said “follow me.” She proceeded to escort us into the men’s bathroom, past the men peeing, and into the last stall. “Here you go, it’s lit and quiet in the dunny.”
We chatted about the surreal wonders of one of the biggest music festivals in the States, hanging out with fellow Aussie acts over Kanye, and what will happen to the musicians when the Apocalypse comes… Plus a stellar live performance of her band Washington at the Aussie BBQ showcase at Maggie May’s. The Melbourne based six piece finish up their U.S. tour soon and start in the UK in November. GO.
