Mike Doughty live @ Music Millennium

We ventured over to Music Millennium on East Burnside yesterday to catch one of my music heros, Mike Doughty.  He was in town for a show last evening @ The Wonder Ballroom and graciously decided to perform a set for free for his biggest fans.  Mike was the lead singer of a great band in the 90s – Soul Coughing.  My friend Jon from New Orleans introduced them to me back around 1996 or so and I have listened to them ever since.  When Mike went off on his own, I stuck with it as his sound and lyrics keep me coming back.  With songs like 27 Jennifers, Bustin up a Starbucks and Janine (from the Soul Coughing days,) how can’t you.  I remember seeing Soul Coughing back in the day at Pine Street Theater.  We saw them on a Tuesday followd by Luscious Jackson on a Wednesday.  I miss those days of night after night of live music…  So, check out the vid of Mike performing Looking at the world from the bottom of the well.  Enjoy.

    That was great! I just showed it to my son (6). He loves Mike Doughty, and I would have loved to have taken him to MM yesterday, but we had friends visiting from out of town. Thanks for sharing.
