Awesomeness from Austin: The second installment of On the Road finds Cas Haley taking a break from SXSW to hitch a ride in a pedicab and sing “Will I Find.”


Cas Haley cruising the Austin streets in a pedicab, singing “Will I Find.”   Dane and April have outdone themselves in this latest installment of On the Road. Our thanks to Cas, who also answered a few questions for us below.

What bands are you looking forward to seeing?

I’m looking forward to seeing some bands I haven’t heard of. I’m not looking forward to any one band, but I’m looking forward to all of them.

What’s your favorite venue to play in Austin and why?

I like Stubb’s. I’ve only had one show there and it was our last show in Austin. It was really cool. I like the space and the BBQ.

Do you have any pre-show rituals?

Oh yeah. But I can’t reveal that.

Is there a most annoying audience habit for you?

I don’t like when someone tries to come up and talk to me in the middle of a song, expecting an answer right then. I’m like, “What’s going on with you?”

What’s been your most embarrassing moment on stage?

I was in Frome United Kingdom and my pants were unzipped. There were probably 1,000 people. It was a big show. I walked off the stage and was like “Oh my goodness.” These two old ladies came up laughing and said “We were pointing at your zipper there!” That was definitely the biggest disaster. Now I make sure my pants are zipped up before I go out on stage,

Career highlight?

I feel like it’s yet to come. So far, my biggest career highlight has been probably getting to tour the UK.  Getting the opportunity to keep playing is a highlight every day.
