The acerbic & talented Mike Doughty brings himself to Boulder tonight for a taping of E-Town, and I am looking forward to seeing his show. I’ve been a fan since seeing Soul Coughing live in the mid-’90s, and if I ever see him up close again, I still thoroughly intend to move a-side and let the man go through (let the man go through).
I consistently find Mike’s hard-driving use of guitar-as-percussion to be addictively listenable – “I Just Want The Girl In The Blue Dress To Keep On Dancing” from last year’s Golden Delicious (in addition to having one of the greatest song titles of late) was a favorite tune of the summer and the whole year, and every time I stand in Starbucks, I think of this.
