The truth of the matter is that Dorothy Martin has a voice that was made for the Sunset Strip which is where she returned for an intimate showcase at the Viper Room. With a crew of stellar and local familiar musical faces (Eli Wulfmeier and Nick Maybury on guitars, Eliot Lorango on bass, and Jason Ganberg on drums) and now riding under the management wing of Linda Perry (yes, THE Linda Perry), the Viper Room ears were treated to all new material which showed Dorothy and that Grace Slick wail of hers still rooted in bluesy, balls-to-the-wall rock while expanding her sonic landscape. Some songs were tempered, felt more innately personal and even bore a noticeable twang. The Viper crowd devoured every note and – holy shit – that “Mountain” song.
Setlist: “White Butterfly” | “Who Do You Love” | “Ain’t Our Time To Die” | “Girls And Boys” | “Mountain” | “Pretty When You’re High” | “Philadelphia” | “Down To The Bottom” | “Naked Eye” | “Black Tar” | “We Need Love” | ” Flawless” | “Freedom”
