One of the weirdest shows of the week took place at the Slice, Aug. 25.

 While I missed the rapper, the Joe, I arrived in time to be blinded by swirling disco light as Doug Hoyer was Doug Hoyer croons. Photo by Richard Ameryin the middle of a fascinating set of pre-programmed beats and melodies.

Clad in a blindingly white suit “the dude with the ukulele, ” as one stupefied fan described him, crooned out something that may or may not have been a cross between lounge music and disco.

The audience of about 30 people applauded politely and then got up and danced as he jumped off the stage and into their midst.
