Mike Doughty keeps up spring run, introduces "Lo-Fi Lodge" subscription
Along with extending his in-progress spring trek, singer, songwriter and author Mike Doughty has unveiled details about a subscription service he's dubbed "The Lo-Fi Lodge."
The former Soul Coughing frontman has created a weekly subscription program, offering up unreleased material dating back to the beginning of his solo career. For a one-time $20 fee, fans who sign up before the April 27 deadline will receive one new download every week for 32 weeks. Acoustic demo versions from 2008's "Golden Delicious" and 2011's "Yes and Also Yes," as well as previously unrecorded songs penned for the 2002 "Evenhand" soundtrack are among the tracks to be released, according to a press release. The subscription will also include songs that have never been heard before in any form.
In the meantime, Doughty will continue working the road in support of his memoir, "The Book of Drugs," which hit bookshelves Feb. 1, and his recently released two-disc live set, "The Question Jar Show," which surfaced in January. The musician next takes to the stage tonight (4/12) in San Juan Capistrano, CA, and pushes through more 19 cities before wrapping up July 15 in Louisville, KY.
For each gig, Doughty performs music, reads from his memoir and answers audience questions at each show, according to a press release.
