I have seen Mike Doughty too many times to count. In the 90's, I was slightly obsessed with the band Soul Coughing. While most people know them as a one hit wonder, the lyrical content and complex arrangement they served up in their heyday was something that spoke to me. A decade later, I still love the music. Mike's solo stuff is even better. Last night was a great combination of readings from his new book, The Book of Drugs, a broad assortment of his solo music, and a Q&A about his time with Soul Coughing. It was the best I have ever seen him.
