Mike Doughty | Clubs & Concerts, Page: Readings & Signings | Indy Week
This is a past event.

Mike Doughty 

When: Fri., May 11, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $16

Touring behind his recently released memoir The Book of Drugs rather than a new album means that this Mike Doughty appearance will take a different shape than his normal gigs. The seated show promises readings from the book, a question-and-answer session, and, of course, musical selections from Doughty's extensive solo discography. Exploring avenues suggested by Soul Coughing, the bohemian rock band he fronted in the '90s, Doughty's outings since the outfit's 2000 split are hooky and eclectic, leveraging his clever songwriting on rootsy sounds. He smartly blends elements of pop, soul and rock with a bit of offbeat experimentation to keep things from moving in circles. —Spencer Griffith
