Mike Doughty live Tuesday – February 16, 2009
Former Soul Coughing frontman Mike Doughty has an intimate relationship with his fans. For example: When Mike Doughty released his second official solo album, 2008’s Golden Delicious, the reaction from fans was intense. “Some hated it, some loved it better than Soul Coughing,” Doughty says. “I tend to take sharp left turns. Every time I put out a record, the audience seems to like what I did two years ago better. You’d think I could shrug it off because that’s what always happens, but it always gets to me.” Doughty admits that his new album, Sad Man Happy Man a reaction to his fans’ reaction and that he’s giving the people what they want. It is this type of connection with his audience that makes Doughty such an engaging performer. He’s got two gigs at the Cactus Cafe; February 16th & 17th. He’ll stop by Studio 1A for a session with Jay Trachtenberg Tuesday at 2 PM.
