LA-based rockers Dorothy rolled into The Shelter in Detroit, MI on Sunday, January 7, 2018 as part of their Freedom Tour 2018.
“Down to the Bottom” is the latest single from high-energy rockers Dorothy, but based on last night’s show, the band is actually soaring into the atmosphere. Lead singer Dorothy Martin, fighting obvious flu-like symptoms, belted out lyric after lyric in near perfect form.
Opening with “White Butterfly” and a stage engulfed in incense, Martin had the crowd rocking along….word for word. Flowing into “Who Do You Love”, she stopped to acknowledge a front row fan sitting on her daddy’s shoulders. An event she would repeat later in the show when she handed her the show’s setlist while explaining to the crowd that “she was going to rip it off the stage anyway”.
This is just one of the many ways Martin shows her gratitude to her fans and pays tribute to her humble roots. Running through hits like “Raise Hell”, “We Need Love”, and “Philadelphia”, the latter being renamed Detroit in tribute to this night’s show.
Highlighting the night and a definite crowd favorite was the Linda Perry collaboration “Down To The Bottom”. In total, the set consisted of 15 songs finishing with an encore of “Dark Nights” and “Whiskey Fever”.
The band may be named after it’s high-powered lead singer, but this is where it all ends. The guitar riffs from Nick Maybury and Eli Wulfmeier combined with the beats laid down by Jason Ganberg, clearly showcase that this is a total band artistic collaboration.
The tour continues to head east from here before making a turn and heading down into Georgia and Florida.
