There will be a pool of kids who actually want to go back to school, but for the rest of us, all we want is for the good summer times to keep on keeping on and the tunes to keep filling our headspaces. Luckily, the summer hasn’t ended just yet as LA Music Blog’s partnership with Eat|See|Hear continues on into the next month as we present all of this year’s best musical acts at the summer series.

To place a little added emphasize on the “Hear” in Eat|See|Hear, the Blog’s own David Fisch caught up with LA-based roots-rock act King Washington ahead of their performance just prior to a “big” outdoor screen presentation of the movie that made Tom Hanks, well, Tom Hanks: 1988’s Big.

It’s been three years since their last LP dropped, but King Washington is now readying their next record for release. In his interview with the act, David gets the scoop on their future direction and uncovers the many playful aspects of the guys behind the music. Afterward, King Washington performed a meaty set of songs from their arsenal in front of the large crowd in attendance at The Autry at Griffith Park.

Check out the video of David’s interview with King Washington as well as an exclusive performance of the track “Land Without Age” from this past weekend’s event below, and be sure to enter our contest to win passes to see the lovable ’80s cave caper The Goonies, as well as a performance by Halloway, before the show this weekend!
