Doughty shakes an antidepressant and the Midwest

December 21, 2011

Dear compatriots:

Did you hear the thing about me playing a capsule of an antidepressant on YES AND ALSO YES? It happens to be true. Here’s a video of me holding the little tiny capsule up to a mic and shaking it percussively on some tunes:

Now, the tour curves into the Mighty Midwest, and I’m stoked. The band sounds RIDICULOUSLY tight. I kind of used James Brown’s “Love Power Peace” 1972 live album as a model for this show–it’s like a fully realized, cohesive, propulsive set sequence of songs–like a truck with wings and a rocket engine.


Minneapolis tonight!
Chicago on Saturday!
Cleveland on Sunday!

Midwesterners have made for fantastic crowds, for me, for a long time, so I have very high hopes for fun-ness. Hope to see you thar.

Signed, Your Man on I-94,

Mike Doughty
