      EVENT DETAILS
      Mike Doughty

      with The Ghost of Mr. Oberon
      Mike Doughty, the singer, songwriter, producer, author and founder of seminal 90s band SoulCoughing will be playing their debut LP Ruby Vroom in full across the U.S. in 2019.Doughty will be joined on these dates by a cellist, bassist, and guitar player. While they will beperforming Ruby Vroom in its entirety, in the original sequence, what the audience experienceswill be different each night. When I was looking for something to do between album cycles Idecided to tour Irresistible Bliss in full explains Doughty. It was incredibly fun forcing myself towork within that structure. The decisions you make when putting together a set list are differentfrom the ones you make when sequencing a record. This is like performing a single, hour-longpiece of music.Rather than an exact replication of the studio recording, Doughty plans to use a variety of cuesand hand signals to adjust the performance in real time. Live we turn into a musical super-organism. Were basically doing a real-time remix of the record at each show tells Doughty. Itwont not be a note-for-note performance. Im very proud of the record we made; its the sonicembodiment of lower Manhattan in the early 1990s. Yet theres a whole other version of thisrecord that lives in my head. Im extremely excited to see how it evolves night after night.Doughty has released 11 solo albums in the 21st Century, including Haughty Melodic andStellar Motel, and a memoir, The Book of Drugs (hes currently writing a second one). He makeselectro tracks under the names UUL and Dubious Luxury; his opera Revelation was staged inconjunction with WNYC; hes currently writing songs with Wayne Kramer from the MC5. Herecently posted his 100th weekly new song for his Patreon subscribers. And, finally, he hasthree improvised-music bands in Memphis, where he lives: Moticos, Baby Men, and SpookyParty.
