Mike Doughty will launch a full tour with a band in June for the first time since Soul Coughing broke up. Mike Doughty’s Band features Mike Doughty on guitar and vocals, Thomas Bartlett (aka The Doveman) on keyboards and Shahzad Ismaily on drums. After warmup dates in Hoboken, New Jersey (June 5) and Brooklyn (June 6), the trio will kick off a three-week tour in Cleveland on June 9. The run continues through two nights at Stubbs in Austin, Texas, on July 2 and 3, and includes a June 11 performance at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, Tennessee. Full list of dates below.
5 – Hoboken, NJ – Maxwell’s
6 – Brooklyn, NY – Southpaw
Soul Coughing is on my top 5 all time favorite band list. I also had the opportunity to see Mike Doughty solo, just him and a guitar, last year in Brooklyn and enjoyed it.
I’ll probably be going to the June 6 show if anyone is interested.
