Elle King w/ Lola Kirke• March 19, 2022 •The Depot
Reviewed and Photographed by Kevin Rolfe
I’m embarrassed to say that prior to this concert I knew very little about Elle King. I knew the song “Ex’s and Oh’s”. It’s pretty hard to not know that song. It’s a really catchy, really good song. I knew she was Rob Schnieder’s daughter. And I knew she had a great voice. I think anyone who knows Elle King knows these three facts. The last time King was here in Salt Lake City she opened for Heart and Joan Jett. I wasn’t able to go to the show, but by numerous accounts, she about stole the thing. There always seemed to be a buzz when Elle King was coming to town. So I knew I needed to see her in concert. She is so much more than an SNL alums’ daughter, so much more than a voice, and so much more than one song.

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!

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

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.

It’s been another tour that has been a long time coming. Another tour that was affected by the pandemic. I knew it was going to be another tour that was well worth the wait for many reasons. There were five bands on the lineup and all of them were crazy in their own way. It was an insane night. The show was just two hundred tickets away from being a sold-out show. It felt like one the entire night thanks to all the bands, their crew, and all the fans. I was familiar with every band on this lineup. I’ve seen them all perform live more than once. I was certain the energy was going to stay crazy and consistent the entire night.
I’m almost at a loss for words when it comes to explaining how absolutely INCREDIBLE Dayglow was Tuesday night in Salt Lake City! The energy, the music, and frontman Sloan Struble’s dancing were all magnificent! The entire production from sound to lights to the atmosphere that was created was brilliant. Let me tell you all about it!
On Friday, July 30, 2021, The Depot was packed with people. The venue was filled with love and good vibes because of Utah’s own local band, Native Leaves. Native Leaves are a reggae band from the 801 who know how to throw a show! The night consisted of some fantastic openers, along with the beautiful Analea Brown who truly knows how to own the stage. Her beautiful voice paired with some lovely cultural dancing by her and her crew were so fun to watch! She had the crowd dancing and vibing along with her. She did an amazing job at setting the tone and preparing the crowd for the headliners of the night.
The line went down the street at The Depot for the sold out PMD tour featuring Marc E Bassy. There was an excited energy as everyone filed into their spots. Background music began to play and normally people tune it out but people must have been really excited about the show because every single song was sung along to by everyone in attendance! When “Halo” by Beyoncé played, it was so loud that I couldn’t hear the other photographer next to me!
