Most male, urban spoken-word poets have consciously or inadvertently bitten Saul Williams's style. While others are still rehashing his cadences from the 1998 movie, "Slam," Williams has evolved into a post-MC, free-verse rock-star political activist. His work with Rick Rubin and Trent Reznor set him up to be the frontman that he is today, a fitting anchor for the Afro-punk tour. Joining him for this stop at the Black Cat are iconic funk rockers Living Colour and emerging artists CX KiDTRONiK and Tchaka Diallo.-- Rhome Anderson (Oct. 2009)
