Mike Doughty at 3rd & Lindsley 

Let the Man go Through

Let the Man go Through
Before going solo, Mike Doughty was best known as the frontman for ’90s cut-ups Soul Coughing. His most recent disc, Sad Man, Happy Man, is rather straightforward rock as compared to his more eclectic/electric earlier work. Doughty's way with a hook still shines through, however, and his recognizably nasal vocals and quirky way with words (remember his hit “Super Bon Bon?”) add further weight to his mewling muse. Put another way, this isn't a Semisonic or Verve Pipe reunion gig—Doughty's a real musician (and published poet, travel writer and inveterate blogger) who continues to grow his sound without regard to crowds, cutbacks or commercial concerns.
