Austin locals Statuette and The Measure Of joined California bands Troubled Coast and My Iron Lung for the October 11 date of The Awake and Empty Tour at Beale Street Tavern. Troubled Coast was on tour in support of their new album Awake and Empty and My Iron Lung in support of their Grief EP.
Also on the tour was Trey The Ruler (Trey Hales), an American spoken word artist from Vancouver, Washington. His performance of poetry was full of emotion, just like the performances from the rest of the bands. It was an interesting addition and very fitting for the overall mood of the show.
To anyone in Austin who has yet to catch The Measure Of or Statuette perform live, be sure to keep up with them for show dates around town. Both bands put on engaging performances that you will definitely remember.
