Mike Doughty of Soul Coughing

When: Sat., Jan. 28, 7 p.m. 2017

Before the days of torrents, Spotify and even Napster, soundtracks were actually one of the best ways to buy a decent mix of current tunes. That’s how I (and probably a lot of us) found out about that band Soul Coughing, who’s reggae rap-rockish tune “The Bug” appeared on 1997’s Batman and Robin soundtrack. On tour in support of his latest solo record, The Heart Watches While The Brain Burns, Mike Doughty combines 90s rock roots with a surprisingly interesting mix of quirky, spacey sounds that sound almost Beck-inspired.
