Niggy Tardust: Live

After a few cheeky drinks in the surprisingly charming McGlynns pub, I trotted down to the Scala to see Saul Williams’s latest show, in support of last year’s The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of Niggy Tardust.

He managed to pull off a theatrical-glam-hop (?) show in front of a fairly ecclectic crowd, and despite the almost ear-shattering distortion of the venue’s bass amps, translated a version of the record – along with songs and poems (maybe a little too many of the poems) from older works – that satisfied most of my expectations.
