Happening Right Now at SXSW: Saul Williams Pays Tribute to U2

posted by on March 13 at 15:58 PM

Eric Grandy’s currently watching Saul Williams perform in Austin and he just text messaged to say that the poetic hiphop performer just covered U2’s “Sunday Bloody Sunday.”

Crazy!

uh, that's on his last LP. not surprising at all. anyone vaguely familiar with Saul Williams knows he's playing Sunday Bloody Sunday.
