Mike Doughty Kicked Out Drunks from the Stage at Woodstock

December 2, 2008

We have seemingly complained on a regular basis about chatting, drunks and overall rudeness at shows recently. Obviously, these types of behaviors hinder our ability to capture a recording, but the rudeness also inhibits our enjoyment of the show itself. In what is pretty much our passive fantasy, this weekend outstanding singer-songwriter Mike Doughty literally kicked some drunk fans out of his show in Woodstock NY. The youtube video imbedded above captures the moment. I am not sure if Mike maybe went over the edge, or if the drunks truly deserved the ejection, but at least the performers are beginning to fight back against the annoying end of basic concert civility.

Mike Doughty has two upcoming gigs in the NYC area:
December 09, 2008 Blender Theatre NYC (WRXP Holiday Show)
December 31, 2008 Maxwell’s Hoboken NJ

    Assholes not shutting their mouths has become epidemic at shows. Seems like every show I go to half the crowd is yapping on their cell phone as the act is playing. Why pay for tix if you are not going to listen?? Good for Mike, I’d like to see more of this. Actually I’d like to see some of these people beaten to a pulp :))
