Megan Washington

SOLD OUT

Sunday, 13th Sep

Door @ 7.30 pm

Show @ 8.00 pm

 

Following a completely sold-out national headline tour in February this year, two-time ARIA Award winning songbird Megan Washington has now announced the Tangents Tour– an extensive run of dates throughout Australia in August and September.


Covering every national state and territory across 26 shows, the tour will see Megan perform a full string of stripped back, intimate appearances for the first time ever, with a particular focus on visiting her fans outside of Australia’s staple touring markets.


2014 saw Megan release her ARIA Top 5 album
‘There There’ to rave reviews from fans and critics alike, with accompanying international performances throughout Europe and the United Kingdom. Recorded with Sam Dixon (Sia, Adele), Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint) and Leo Abraham (Roxy Music), the record is punctuated by Megan’s trademark lyrical hooks and lush, new-romantic pop references.


In addition to the Tangents Tour, Washington will perform at Splendour In The Grass Festival 2015 alongside Blur, Florence And The Machine, Tame Impala and many more.

Robert Forster - A songwriter’s songwriter

 

Robert Forster was a founding member of The Go-Betweens and co-writer of “Cattle and Cane” Number 20 on APRAs Top Australian Songs List and is currently a writer, solo artist and performer with an ardent following in Australia, Germany, the UK and the US. He has released nine albums with The Go-Betweens and four solo albums with his fifth solo album due out in September 2015 through EMI Records.

 

In 2006 his music writing won the Pascall Prize for Critical Writing. One of his pieces appeared in The Best American Music Writing 2007. When Robert won the Pascall Prize for criticism in 2006, the judges praised the charm and intellectual clarity of his work and hailed him as “a godsend because he writes about popular music with an authority and grace that would be rare in any area of criticism and is all the more striking in a field where criticism is often modish.”

 

What the critics have said about The Go-Betweens

 

The Go-Betweens’ records are works of absolute thundering genius – exquisitely tuneful, lyrically intelligent and balefully funny

 - The Independent Review UK 30 June 2004

 

“The work of true indie pop royalty”  - NME 2003

 

“Robert Forster and Grant McLennan are the greatest songwriting partnership working today” – Robert Christgau, New York Times 2005

 

Their last studio album, released in 2005, received rave reviews worldwide.

 

Bewitching, gutsy, driving, defiant, mesmeric. A musical odyssey – 5 star instant Mojo Classic” – Andrew Male Mojo

 

“There are songs here that count among the best they’ve made. 4 out of 5 stars” – Q

 

“5 Star Album of the Week” – The Guardian

 

The band sounds re-energised” 4/5 Uncut

 

As a writer, the reviews have been the same…

 

Since he started reviewing albums for The Monthly magazine in 2005, Forster has emerged as one of the most erudite and evocative new voices on contemporary music”.

 - Simon Collins, The West Australian Nov 4, 2009

 

Robert Forster is a rare bread: a rock music practitioner who also writes intelligently about rock music. The veteran singer-songwriter has an encyclopedic knowledge of rock and roll history, and an in-depth understanding of how songs and records are put together, and, most importantly, a passion for music.”

- David Cohen, B&P Review Nov 2009

 

A few more facts.

 

The Queensland Government named a bridge after The Go-Betweens. ACDC only got a lane!

 

Evan Katz, producer of the hit show 24 starring Keiffer Sutherland is a massive Go-Betweens fan and wrote a whole episode in the latest (2005) series around a company called McLennan-Forster in honour of his heroes.

Princess Caroline of Monaco wrote to Robert Forster to say how much she loved their album “Bright Yellow Bright Orange” which she bought after she heard a song about herself on the radio called ‘Caroline & I.’.
