Mike Doughty Coming To The Independent In May

While his stage banter could at times use some politeness modifications, we have to say we have s soft spot for Mike Doughty. Ever since his days with Soul Coughing, the singer/poet/songwriter has offered up a unique skill at composition and delivery that is entirely his own.

Last year Doughty dropped his latest solo record, Golden Delicious, and it's exactly what we'd consider go-to Doughty. Rhythmic, upbeat, word played compositions that catch your ear and stick with you for days afterward.

Doughty's been ferociously touring in support of the new record, and he's not slowing down any time soon. He's planned a series of dates for April and May, which include a number of stops on the west coast. If you're in the mood for some catchy, eccentric, acoustic pop, we highly recommend you check it out. He'll be at the Independent on May 9th, and tickets are on-sale now.
