Georgetown talks to us about Park Acoustics (and a few other things)


Georgetown are one of the acts that you can see at Park Acoustics this Sunday. The other acts on the line-up are Crimson House, Die Heuwels Fantasties, Wolfgang Marrow, Little Ringo and #SOZLOL. There will also be stand-up comedy sets from Casper De Vries, Joey Rasdien and Hannes Brummer.

I had a chat to Georgetown about this weekend’s Park Acoustics and a few other things. This is what they had to say.

Where does the name “Georgetown” come from?

We were backpacking through Malaysia and played at a reggae bar on their open mic night. We had such a fun night and decided to start a band and name it after the town we were in, “Georgetown”.

What is the weirdest thing that’s ever happened to you during a live show?

We played at a wedding and someone dropped what seemed to be a bag of cocaine on the dancefloor, the look on everyone’s faces confirmed the content of the plastic zip-lock – everyone shuffled along to try and cover it up.

What can we expect from Georgetown in the remainder of 2018?

We launched our album at the Atterbury Theatre and realized how we’ve been missing out on this gem, so we decided to book a whole lot of theatre shows for the rest of the year to get a bit more intimate with our fans. Oh and perhaps a new song or two but you’ll have to wait and see.

What is your favourite song to sing in the shower and why?

We rarely shower together, but when we do we like to sing an acapella version of Ricky Martin’s “Livin’ La Vida Loca”.

What can we expect from Georgetown at Park Acoustics?

High energy blue-billy-folk-pop music, and a colab or two, or three!

I’d like to thank Georgetown for this interview. I wish them good luck with their future musical endeavours and Sunday’s set at Park Acoustics. If you don’t have tickets yet, get them HERE.

If you haven’t seen them live, check out this video (which was recorded on SABC 3’s Expresso show):
