Tonight’s show was going to be an exciting one for me because I have not been to a rocking concert since the December appearance of the mighty Trans-Siberian Orchestra over at Newark’s Prudential Center. Now it’s not like there weren’t any shows taking place since that point in time but I’ve been working nights and it’s pretty hard to get to all the things that you want to attend when you are trying to earn during the times that the shows are happening. Since my only night off was a Monday I was stoked that I would get to enjoy this “Young Guns Tour” that featured both Dirty Honey and Mammoth WVH at NYC’s famed Webster Hall. I’d seen Dirty Honey once before and was incredibly impressed by both the sound and the delivery of the band and tonight I’d get to add another tick on the sheet about them. Mammon WVH would be a first go-round despite my having enjoyed some of their videos and the music I’d heard so far. Fortunately for all in attendance it was only going to be these two bands. No one was leading off and there wasn’t any terrible local that somehow secured the area gig which we find happening every now and again. If you came here for the Young Guns that was exactly what you were going to get. Dirty Honey would lead off the show and here are my thoughts on them.

“Dirty Honey and Mammoth WVH are two of the best new, real, emerging rock bands we have today. Touring together will prove that rock is far from dead, and will no doubt showcase its very bright future.” — Eddie Trunk • TrunkNation Sirius XM Radio
“We played one co-headline show with Dirty Honey back in September. As soon as the night was over, we knew this would be a great package to take across the US. We couldn’t be more excited to share the stage with them and give all of the fans an unforgettable night of rock music,” explains Wolfgang Van Halen.
