The Bourbon Theatre hosted two amazing bands.  Dirty Honey are touring in support of their latest, Can’t Find the Brakes, album.  They made their stop in Lincoln, Nebraska on December 1, 2023.  The Lincoln show was stop 29 of the 39-date tour. Opening the show for Dirty Honey was Austin Meade. 

Austin Meade, hailing from the great state of Texas, has a solid southern rock foundation with a 70s psychedelic influence. With driving guitar riffs and ripping solos to accentuate Austin Meade‘s powerful vocals, this band has a great stage presence along with great hits like Happier Alone, Blackout and Dopamine Drop. 

Austin Meade started the show with “Violation Delight” from their 2022 release, Abstract Art of an Unstable Mind, and then into “Dopamine Drop”.  That 70s rock feel got the crowd groovin’ and made for an energetic, rockin’ show. 

Dirty Honey, based out of Los Angeles, CA. is the only unsigned band to top the Billboard charts with their No. 1 hit “When I’m Gone.”  That song, along with a super high energy performance, put them on the map and had them opening for the likes of The Black Crowes, Guns N Roses, and Kiss. Friday night’s show has got to be one of the best performances I have ever seen. I was engrossed in the music and the performance from start to finish. The saying “Infectious Groove” was coined for bands like Dirty Honey. 

Their covers of The Stone’s “Honky Tonk Women” and Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy” only added to the already great set list. They started the evening with “Can’t Find the Brakes,” “California Dreamin,” and “Heartbreaker.”  Then into one of my favorites “The Wire” and ended the show with “Won’t Take Me Alive” and “Rolling 7s” 

This tour, or any Dirty Honey show, is a must-see!  I can’t say enough, these guys are the real deal, absolute rock stars!
