Mike Doughty explains when to hold ‘em and when to fold ‘em

About a week ago, Mike Doughty played a Question Jar show at The Independent in San Francisco. I was hoping he’d play “The Gambler” and even brought my Flip in anticipation that he’d play it.

Unfortunately, over two shows, he didn’t play it. I was a little disappointed.

Luckily, though, early in the first set, he was asked “How do you know when to hold ‘em and know when to fold ‘em?”

I freaked out and quickly fired up the the Flip and got most of his answer.

On a quick note about finding new versions of “The Gambler,” I’ve started trolling through ReverbNation, PureVolume, The Live Music Archive, and, of course, the stand-by of all stand-by’s, MySpace. If you know anybody that’s recorded or if you’ve recorded it yourself, please send it in, and I’ll add it to the playlist.
