All them tremendous brunettes

My dear Pittsburghers: Do you have plans for tonight? Can you cancel them? ‘Cause the thing you should be doing around 8pm is heading to Mr. Small’s Funhouse in Millvale to see Mike Doughty and his band live and in concert.

He used to be the singer/songwriter for Soul Coughing (although apparently he doesn’t like people to mention that to him). His solo stuff is less heavily produced than Soul Coughing was — you can hear the latest album at his website here, and also check out pictures and notes from the current tour on his blog.

I volunteered to watch over his email list signup sheet at the show, so look for me if you go. I’ll be the one rocking out hard yet blissfully.
