Super group Middle Brother takes a break from SXSW to sing “Million Dollar Bill” for the next installment of On the Road series.
What bands are you looking forward to seeing?
John McCauley: Odd Future
Matt Vasquez: Old 97’s
Taylor Goldsmith: Bright Eyes
What was your most embarrassing moment on stage?
Taylor: I went on stage once and my fly was down. On the third verse the song really broke down and got really quiet with just guitar and vocal. The whole room was quiet and this dude in the fourth row yelled “Your fly is down!” The whole venue started laughing at me. It was awful.
What has been the band’s career highlight so far?
Matt: We (Delta Spirit) missed 10 flights one time on our way to Bonnaroo. Our booking agent Jackie and our PR dude Ken helped get us the last night at Bonaroo and it was one of the most insane shows we’ve ever played. When we started to play, it rained and it was the headiest, craziest experience.
What’s the ultimate road trip song?
Taylor: King of the Road, by Roger Miller.
Any pre-show rituals?
Matt: Drink beer.
John: A lot of it’s illegal.
