Saul Williams has announced a thirty-stop live tour in support of his recent release, The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of NiggyTardust!. Kicking off March 12 at Austin's SXSW, Saul Williams' "The Tar Spangled Banner Tour" will consist of both live musical performances as well as spoken word events in select cities.
