Mike Doughty came to fame in the ’90s with his band Soul Coughing. A jarring blend of funk, jazz and rock — not to mention the front person’s distinct, gravelly voice — made the group stand out in a sea of burgeoning alternative rock groups. But Soul Coughing were short-lived compared to Doughty’s prodigious solo career. He’s released more than a dozen albums and wrote The Book of Drugs, a memoir chronicling the implosion of his former band, his opioid addiction and his subsequent recovery. Catch Doughty on Tuesday, February 18, at ArtsRiot in Burlington.
