LAST RITES: Among the guests at Damir Doma's show in Paris was Saul Williams, who is about to begin a tour in support of his album "Volcanic Sunlight" following a taster gig at the David Lynch-designed nightclub Silencio earlier this month. The poet, performer and actor spent the summer in Senegal playing the lead in director Alain Gomis's "Aujourd'hui" (“Today”), scheduled for release next year. "It's about a guy who finds out he's going to die, and the day of his death, and all the things he wants to do on his last day,” he said. "So he's like Michael Jackson for a day."
