Show Info

Mike Doughty contains multitudes: Singer. Songwriter. Guitar player. Poet. Author. Playwright. Photographer. Most Improved Camper, West Point Youth Camp, 1982. He’s released five solo albums, some EPs, a couple of live albums, a bunch of EDM tracks and remixes, a poetry book, and a memoir about that time he was in a band called Soul Coughing and didn’t like it and took a lot of drugs. In the fall of 2012 he released an album of covers, wherein he played songs by John Denver, Cheap Trick, and Stephen Sondheim. After years of not playing the songs of the band he founded in the 90s, Mike Doughty’s got an upright bass player, a drummer, and he’s put together a show playing the best of Soul Coughing–”Super Bon Bon”, “Circles” among them. “My memoir, The Book of Drugs, was a big fat ball of darkness,” Doughty says. “I wanted to figure out who I was, where I was, and what I meant, when I wrote those songs–and what, back then, I originally wanted them to sound like.” Most recently, Doughty released three recordings featuring the late Elliott Smith under the alias UUL (https://soundcloud.com/hellouul), which can be heard here: http://pitchfork.com/news/53748-elliott-smith-goes-edm-as-mike-doughty-shares-unreleased-collaboration. The Smith vocals were recorded in the late '90s, and were later incorporated into electronic dance tracks by Doughty. Doughty, joined by the inimitable Andrew "Scrap" Livingston, picks audience questions and requests out of a jar- and his audience is wickedly good at coming up with extremely weird things to ask.
