Santigold @ Terminal 5
June 9, 2009 - New York, NY
By Dese'Rae Stage
Santigold, formerly known as Santogold, is on a short North American tour before heading back to the studio to work on her second album.
Something new this time around includes a full band and a set of 'dancers' to bring even more high-energy on stage.
Despite the M.I.A. comparisons, Santigold claims her influences come from 80's pop and New Wave more so than hip-hop or 'world music' -- often doing covers of The Clash or The Cure in her shows.
Her tour will finally end at the magnificently large Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA June 21 before venturing into the depths of Europe delivering her "world music" -- whatever crazy influence that might be.
