Picking Up Crumbs: Saul Williams

27 Oct

Pray for Saul Williams. The company he keeps indicates some form of Stockholm Syndrome or extreme personality changes or serious lapse of judgement. The Afro-Punk sponsored show at the Varsity Theater started off great with sets from locals Dearling Physique and No Bird Sing, which simply stoked the high expectations for the ground-breaking spoken word and hip-hop artist. As MC Eric Blair of No Bird Sing put it, “Saul-Fucking-Williams!” But it was not to be. In fact, it was to go horribly, horrifyingly wrong. Like Hinder opening for Ani DiFranco, or Prussian Blue fronting Public Enemy. Tragic. I don’t want to talk about it anymore, I already did for the City Pages blog, so check it out there. In fact, I went home and listened to “Our Father”, cried a bit and then got righteously angry, which the Saul Williams in my head would approve of.
