Messer

Dallas based rock extraordinaire’s, MESSER set forth to kick off the Make This Life’ Texas tour. Their tour started off in the live music capital of the world, Austin, TX at the premiere rock club Come and Take It Live.

Fans from all over Central Texas came out to see the guys take the stage. Taking in the atmosphere at the venue, people started to get ready for the action to begin. While waiting for the band to begin their set, I had a chance to check out the merchandise area and I have to say that I was impressed by the variety of items they had for fans to support the band. Personally, I picked up one of their snapbacks because I love a good hat.

As the lights went out, I knew it was time to go-to-town. The lighting kicked in as the show went into full gear. MESSER‘s lighting added that extra layer to a performance that fans enjoy and makes a performance, a show. The band kicked their set off with “Everything Is Beautiful”. This set the standard for the rest of the night.

During the show it was mentioned that the music video for “Make This Life” was being released the next day and that the self-titled album for it would be released on April 20th, 2018. Check out the video below:

The highlight of the night was when they played “Simple Man”. It is a song about knowing your self-worth and not letting life walk all over you. Everyone in the crowd including myself was into it and screaming the lyrics at the top of our lungs. 

You can not go to a MESSER show without realizing how each of the band members add a unique element to the band as well as their performance. Each of them command an individual and collective presence live.

After the show, they took the time to meet with all the fans. This night will be one that I will not soon forget, you can count on that!

About Tracy Fuller 29 Articles
I love music, I love crowded venues, loud music, and sweat-soaked fans. I love the sound of a venue opening its doors to the public. I ended up moving to the Austin area in 2011. I have nearly a decade of experience in the Entertainment & Private Event industries. I have supervised at a number of concert venues and festivals, such as Emo’s East, Stubb’s, ACL Festival, Bonnaroo, Austin Fan Fest, SXSW, and the Austin Trail of Lights. In 2014, I began to take an interest in all things media related. I ended up chasing those ambitions and became a content creator and a concert photographer. With no formal training in any of those areas, in 2017 I decided it was time to change that up. I decided to pursue a degree in the Arts focusing on Radio, Television, and Film. As I began my academic path, I inquired about the Media department. I currently am a multimedia journalist for the Student Life department at ACC. To further my education, I received a scholarship with the Austin Film Society to become a TV Producer at Austin Public Studios. I believe in capturing the essence of life and representing it in a creative effort.
