Saul Williams @ Triple Rock Social Club

I think I saw Saul Williams a few years ago at Lollapalooza, and was actually disappointed.  I remember seeing him and thinking that it was a lot louder and punk-ier than I was hoping for.  So when I saw he was stopping at the Triple Rock, I decided to give his music another listen.  What I heard wasn't what I remembered seeing live.  I really liked it, so thought I give it another shot.  It turned out to be a pretty good show live.  Maybe being in a smaller indoor venue helped keep things a little more contained.  Whatever it was, it worked.  

The show itself was great, except for one particular fan.  I initially got a great spot on the floor near the front, and for a few songs was really enjoying myself.  Aside from the really drunk girl bumping into me, there was plenty of room.  But quickly I learned who I was standing in front of.  A group of douchebags.  I know this because they kept threatening to throw their beer at anyone who was going to use their phone to take pictures or video.  Something that I fully intended on doing myself.  After they yelled a guy next to me about it, I figured I'd grab another beer and find another spot to camp.  No biggie, until the main douche decided that he needed a change too, and ended up standing in front of me.  It didn't bother me much, but was a little distracting since I moved to be away from this idiot.  

Overall the show itself was great, and I would definitely see him again live.  As long as it was inside a small club, that is.  Unfortunately, douchebags attend concerts too.
