The Aces w/ The Rubies & Madeline the Person November 24, 2021 The Depot
Reviewed by Evelyn Salazar
There’s no question that when someone says Rock N Roll the majority of people don’t think about girl rock bands. However, The Aces are here to change that. This Utah native band is so loved here and that was definitely reflected on their tour stop in Salt Lake City at The Depot. As I approached The Depot the line was wrapped around the building with fans eagerly waiting to get inside!

Reviewed by Jacob Moniz
Australian musician Courtney Barnett marked her 5th stop at The Depot on her US tour for her newest album “Things take time, take time” this last Friday, December 2nd. I was incredibly excited for this show specifically because she’s the first Australian artist I’ve seen live, and it was my first time photographing at The Depot.
Silverstein w/ The Plot In You & Can’t Swim at The Depot November 16, 2021
Reviewed by Vanessa Holt
The long-awaited 20-year Silverstein Anniversary Tour finally made its way to Utah, after the rescheduled dates and a revised lineup. It was an exciting night with a setlist stacked with some of the best songs from each band. At first, I was caught off guard when I found out that the line for the shows wasn’t wrapped around into The Gateway like it normally is when there’s a sold-out show at The Depot. However, the line was non-stop the entire night with everyone making their way to the venue.
Summer Salt w/ Breakup Shoes & Covey. November 11, 2021 The Complex
Reviewed by Maralee Nielson
November 11, 2021, this time of year it’s pretty chilly usually in the Salt Lake area but no matter how cold it is it doesn’t ever stop fans from coming out early and waiting outside the venue. Tonight Summer Salt stopped by Salt Lake City for the last show of their tour. They were joined by support bands Breakup shoes and Covey. Doors for the show were planned for 7 PM but there were people lined up as early as 4 PM. Maybe even earlier than that.
Dr. Dog Last Tour Saturday, November 6, 2021 The Union Events Center
Reviewed by Katie Barber
Tōth (led by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Alex Toth of Rubblebucket fame) set a perfectly indie mood for the sold-out Dr. Dog show on a cool fall evening at The Union. Alongside Alex, drummer Jeremy Gustin and bassist Ryan Dugre sported brightly colored coveralls that matched the headliner’s Mondrian-like backdrop, a colorful dissonance that complimented the swirling vocals of the band. As the venue slowly reached capacity, stragglers were welcomed by Alex’s trumpet solos and the resulting enthusiastic cheers of the crowd.
FINNEAS w/ Marinelli & The Optimist Tour November 6, 2021 The Depot
By: Vanessa Holt
The Optimist Tour, one of the shortest tours I’ve ever had to wait on but somehow felt like the longest. Most people know of FINNEAS to be writing songs and playing shows with his sister, Billie Eilish. I remember when I saw Billie Eilish when she was last in Utah and thinking, “one of these days we’re going to see FINNEAS go on a solo tour.”
Jeremy Zucker More Noise Tour October 30, 2021- The Complex
Review by Kaden Severn
The Complex was home to another sold-out show. The room filled up quick with excited fans ready for Jeremy Zucker! I’ve always loved how relatable Jeremy’s lyrics are. I think that with that combined with his beautiful voice, we were all in for a treat that night.
Winnetka Bowling League w/ Gayle– The Beehive November 5, 2021
By: Vanessa Holt
Another show was added to my list of artists I’ve never heard prior to the night of the show. I’ve enjoyed these shows because I’m discovering so many artists in the best way possible. Hearing their songs live and being able to watch them light up on stage the way all artists do. All I knew of Winnetka Bowling League was that they were an alternative band which is right up my alley. So it was going to be a show I was going to enjoy either way.
