Show Review & Photos: Motörhead @ Showbox SoDo

Friday night’s Motörhead set ripped open with “We Are Motörhead,” off 2000’s We Are Motörhead. Its lyrics include we shoot power to your heart, a mighty thunderbolt/ we charge all batteries, we save your soul, and I didn’t doubt these promises at all when it came from Motörhead’s Lemmy, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee. The show was at capacity, and the audience and band’s energy maintained an excited level from the rampant first songs, including the excellent and new “Get Back in Line” to the closing songs “Ace of Spades” and “Killed by Death” (before an encore), to all the meat in between (with a glorious Just ‘cos You Got the Power). Lemmy’s growl came out strong in the venue (the venue’s a giant rectangle, so I never know how a voice will carry in there) the guitar and bass guitar sounded big just like they should, and I totally enjoyed Mikkey Dee’s drum solo. How great was it to hear Lemmy roar, live I´m a lone wolf ligger/but I ain´t no pretty boy? Very, very great. All of Motörhead’s work abides because of its concrete quality, its unique essence.
