More About

Saul Williams is often pigeonholed as a slam poet, a rapper, or an "Afro-Punk" artist, but that does a disservice to his wide-ranging abilities as a performer. Though he hasn't abandoned rhythms and rhymes with his lyrics, his most recent album, Volcanic Sunlight, veers delightfully left of expectations: There are big helpings of moody singing set against a sonic backdrop woven from such disparate influences as Bollywood soundtracks and British goth. The album's pace is frenetic, and since Williams is known to crank it up several notches when he hits the stage, expect a sweaty show when he performs Saturday, March 10, at Slim's.
