Washington performs two intimate acoustic shows at HOTA, as part of the UPSPRING Supper Club series this November.

The most impressive thing Meg Washington does is write great songs.

Her new album, Batflowers and the lead single Dark Parts has been raucously received, selling out three nights at The Tivoli; and she is now excited to bring the show to HOTA for two very special intimate acoustic performances.

The music video for Dark Parts has been scooped directly out of Meg’s brain, collaborating with film director and partner Nick Waterman to create a desktop facetime call to the dark side, featuring spookily animated incarnations of Washington over her frankly quite bonkers career.

Working with New Farm neighbourhood pal Konstantin Kersting (Mallrat, Tones and I, The Jungle Giants) – and polished by Meg’s frequent co-writer and collaborator Sam Dixon (Sia, Adele), Dark Parts received rave reviews from the likes of The Guardian, Junkee, Rolling Stone, NME, airplay across the country plus admiration from BBC Radio 1 in the UK.

The creation of, Batflowers, was an exercise in getting to the raw guts of why anyone makes music at all. This search ultimately armed Meg with a kind of brazen bolshiness, handing her a baton long presumed lost so that now she can finally run the whole damn show.

“There’s truly nothing that Megan Washington can’t do” – Rolling Stone

“Megan Washington is one of Australia’s most daring and inventive musicians.” – Junkee

“Dark Parts’ sees Washington free herself of all restraints and go absolutely nuts with it.” – Music Feeds

Presented by HOTA, Home of the Arts as part of UPSPRING
