Los Angeles rocker’s, Dirty Honey, recently released a new album, Can’t Find the Brakes, which is an aptly named album for the band who have skyrocketed in popularity since they burst onto the scene with their number one hit “When I’m Gone” back in 2019.  That single put them on the map and made them the first unsigned band in Billboard history to reach number one on the mainstream rock charts. 

Dirty Honey has been constantly touring since then both at home and in Europe and their current Can’t Find The Brakes tour brought them to downtown Salt Lake City with a stop at The Depot this past weekend.  Fans filled the venue eagerly awaiting the band’s explosive live performance that they have come to be known for.  Dirty Honey, along with special guest Austin Meade, delivered a performance that left the fans cheering the live performance. 

Once the lights dimmed and Dirty Honey strode out on the stage the fans erupted in a loud cheer.  The band put on a show that was nothing short of exhilarating as vocalist Marc Labelle worked the stage like a seasoned pro even jumping down on the barricade and engaging with the fans numerous times throughout the night.  Backed by his longtime band mates, Justin Smolian (bass) and John Notto (guitar) the band enthralled everyone with fan favorites and new music alike.  The show was made even more special as the new drummer, Jaydon Bean, was able to play in his hometown of Salt Lake City and gave the fans an extra reason to cheer seeing on of their own on the stage.  The chemistry between the band and Bean was seamless and their energy infected the crowd. 

The setlist was an impressive mix of favorites including “California Dreamin,” “Heartbreaker,” “Another Last Time,” and the smash hit “When I’m Gone.”  Fans were treated with an encore performance that included their single “Won’t Take Me Alive” off of their newest album and has already hit in the top 10 in the charts and a closing song of “Rolling 7’s” which sent the venue into a cheering frenzy. 


Overall, the concert was a successful display of pure musical talent and rock n roll.  Dirty Honey’s electrifying live performance and energy left a lasting impression on their fans once again, who are no doubt already looking forward to the next time these rockers visit Salt Lake City. 

Dirty Honey will be on the road finishing out the current US leg of their tour now through December 15th when they finish it up in St Louis before heading over to start their European leg in February.  Tickets and info can be found here.
