2017 Winter Tour On Sale Now!

October 31, 2016

Tickets for Mike’s 2017 winter tour are now on sale!

These shows will be with a full band – a cello/bass player, drums, another guitar player, an organ player, and a backing vocalist – six people on stage. The show consists of basically live remixing. Using hand gestures, Doughty improvises changes in what the musicians in the band are doing – stopping, starting, getting louder or quieter, changing their parts, repeating their parts. The songs are Soul Coughing songs and Doughty solo songs, but none are ever performed the same way twice.

It’s a kind of simplified version of something Doughty saw John Zorn doing with avant-garde jazz in the 1990s, but adapted to be more along the lines of a dance music or hip-hop producer mixing tracks – bringing in the drums, dropping them out, juggling the musicians like samples.

All shows will be with special guest Wheatus.
