Five thousand years old and funky in more ways than one, Here Come the Mummies is a forgotten tribe of raunchy pun lovers out of the distant, dusty past. In an unforgettable stage show, the 13 rag-wrapped, vulgar-minded undead unravel funky jams such as “Bump” and “Carnal Carnival,” which weave innuendo with tales of characters such as the boogeyman and a hot-dog vendor. Other songs include “Libido Knievel” about a lascivious daredevil and “Dirty Minds,” a confession about the gutter-bound thoughts of the band set to a mambo-paced rhythm. Perhaps the most thrilling portion of any Here Come the Mummies concert occurs when the band breaks out its trademark cowbelts—one-of-a-kind pelvic bells played with hip thrusts.
For this booty-moving performance, The Fillmore Detroit opens up the hardwood dance floor so that audiences can get down, crowd around the band, and dig beneath the stage for golden sarcophagi. Just like at the original Fillmore, chandeliers dangle from a vaulted golden ceiling, and a wall of posters proclaims a sampling of some of the headlining acts across the years.
