Mike Doughty & His Band Fantastic, Moon Hooch

When: Tue., Oct. 25, 8 p.m. 2011

Though he's still best known as the former frontman of the offbeat '90s New York alt-rock band Soul Coughing, Mike Doughty has now been playing without that quartet longer than he played with them. There are, of course, many similarities between his current music and his Soul Coughing work—fragmented poetry, speak-sing delivery, quirky hooks and irresistible melodies are Doughty's calling cards—though the arrangements, while still eclectic, are rooted more in acoustic instrumentation. Don't miss opener Moon Hooch, a Brooklyn trio that pairs two tenor saxes with drums to create a funky, danceable jazz groove. —Spencer Griffith

Price: $16-18
