Mike Doughty Selling Personalized Song For $543 to $35K
Fans who purchase "Dogs/Demons" can choose between three different keys in which Doughty will play the song (C, D, or D-sharp), and the option to add a bridge for an additional price. And Doughty will record it onto a digital recorder, along with the buyer's name and the date and location of the recording, and send that digital recorder straight to the fan, signed and numbered by Doughty himself. The fan gets a unique piece of art: the only version of that performance of the song, anywhere in the world.
The base price for this exclusive, customized piece is $543.09, with an additional charge of $267.18 for the optional bridge. Doughty is willing to record a personal message, in addition to the purchaser's name, date, and other basic details; the charge for a personal message is $35,335.53.

Mike Doughty will play a number of one-off shows in the coming months:
Dec 6 -- Minneapolis, MN -- Dakota Jazz Club
