Mike Doughty Plays Soul Coughing on Saturday at Webster HallNovember 22nd, 2013
Mike Doughty—who at one time worked the door at the Knitting Factory—fronted the NYC quartet Soul Coughing in the ’90s. But when they broke up in 2000, he decided to go it alone, releasing his first solo LP, Skittish, which he’d actually recorded four years earlier. Doughty (above, performing a solo take on “Super Bon Bon,” for A-Sides) has been a busy man ever since, touring, putting out more albums and even finding time to become a blogger and author known for his sense of humor. But after years of not playing Soul Coughing material, he’s currently busy reliving his full-band catalog, playing entire shows comprised of songs from the band’s Ruby Vroom (stream it below), Irresistible Bliss and El Oso. And you’ve got one last chance to see Doughty performing these Soul Coughing gems because he closes out his tour on Saturday at Webster Hall.
