Re: “Mike Doughty's Soul Coughing demons still haunt him

My band spent a short time sharing a tour with Soul Coughing. There's no way I could know all the inner workings and dynamics of their band, but the Mike Doughty of 2012 seems to never have even met the M. Doughty of 1998.

Hey Mike, here's a psychology term you might want to do some research on: PROJECTION.

Re: “Mike Doughty's Soul Coughing demons still haunt him

I would probably hate Mike Doughty's guts too if I was in a band with him. What a loser. To hear him slag off his former bandmates in such a way shows that he still hasn’t taken responsibility for his actions or resolved any of his borderline personality issues. That’s great that he’s no longer a crack head, but he’s still a delusional/arrogant asshole (and a lucky one at that).

To think he wanted to take all the credit for the Soul Coughing sound/songs is pretty ridiculous. Writing a simple guitar riff and putting some nonsensical words to it does not warrant getting complete credit for a band’s sound/songs. Gee, do you think the guy with the Masters degree in composition from the Mannes College of Music had anything to do with it? (Mark degli Antoni, keyboardist/sampler) or the other guys who had been playing for 10 years before they even met this clown with a cool voice?

It’s pretty obvious from listening to his solo mediocre coffee shop pop that Soul Coughing was a collective sound and his personality/rampant drug use made him more of a liability than an asset to the band.

It's so great that this article gets the other side of the story. It's pretty clear who the asshole is.

Re: “Mudstop Mondays is Barnyard's Pool Room party now

From the backyard to The Barnyard, Mike and Heath continue to make great beer and provide great music for all thier friends...and soon to be friends (thats you). Stop by and sample a Rooster Red, or one of Heath's other fine brews, while you catch show. No Show going on...stop by anyway. The beer is still on tap.

Cheers!

Re: “Mudstop Mondays is Barnyard's Pool Room party now

i have followed this open mic for years at different venues. no cover and good music makes mudstomp mondays hard to beat. as for kansas bluegrass, there are many original styles of kansas bluegrass other than the rock infused split lip rayfield variety. these styles take stage every open mic and keep it interesting.

Re: “Mudstop Mondays is Barnyard's Pool Room party now

I have watched this project from conception. The brewmasters, bartenders, FOH techs, musicians, and friends have clearly shown dedication to this venue and perfectly good reason to party on a Monday night. Kansas bluegrass as well as Barnyard Beer are here to stay. Rock Chalk.

Re: “Mudstop Mondays is Barnyard's Pool Room party now

The Barnyard Brewery is growing fast and catching the eyes of people. They have some of the best drink specials in town with no door cover on Monday nights and sometimes even good food. Keep your eyes peeled for Blue Collar Bar B Que a pint of Barnyards finest brews some good looking Barnyard Servers and some of the best damn music in the Mid West.

Re: “Mudstop Mondays is Barnyard's Pool Room party now

Barnyard is rapidly establishing itself as an indispensable member of the acoustic music community. They need our support! Keeping alive the tradition of American folk music by providing a venue for budding musicians is extremely important…and it’s also just a great place to grab a brew (the Porter is my favorite!)

Re: “Mudstop Mondays is Barnyard's Pool Room party now

We really hope to see new faces stop in to see us! This bar offers something that most bars don't. Don't expect to come in and just be another customer. As the Mudstomp Monday bartender, we welcome you with open arms. Stories and laughter are always share. You truly become family to us. We're close knit and always enjoy getting to really know each person who walks in the door. Look out for our awesome whiskey specials too!..after all, we love our brown juice in these parts.

Don't look for Ninth & Iowa in downtown Lawrence. It's nearly three miles west of downtown.

Re: “Sam Baker brings his hidden talent to the Folly

I saw this show Saturday night.
The house lights were up during the entire performance and people were often seen with tears in their eyes by the end of a song, yet laughing over his witty engagement with the audience between sets.

It was the most brilliant and intense performance I've ever seen, and it came from a single man with an acoustic guitar and a harmonica.

Re: “Sam Baker brings his hidden talent to the Folly

I was at that show back in June of 2010.

I went to see Jim White, another one of my favorite singer/songwriters, and Sam's set wound up being a sweet bonus.

After all Sam's been through, its amazing how well he performs.

He explained how messed up his hearing and his vision was after the bombing, and went in to detail about the German kid that was riding next to him (who died in the carnage) on the train.

Then he had them bring up the house lights so he could see the audience. Thats the second time I've ever been present when a performer asked for the room to be lit up insted of dimly lit.
Quite a differnt feeling.

Sam is a perfect fit for The Folly, so folks, do yourselves a favor and catch Sam's show.

Re: “Band of brothers Radkey marches out of St. Joseph

This article and its take remind me of the grunge days. MTV came through Lawrence and when asked about the music scene replied, "It sucks". That assessment is so detrimental to any community. It also pisses off all the people busting their asses. Rethink your words.
