Santogold @ Summerstage '08
So yesterday I braved the sweltering heat to see a new artist that I've been digging for awhile now. Her name is Santi White aka Santogold, the Brooklyn transplant from Illadelph. It was such a hot day, I don't even know how I did it but it was worth it in the end. The bill comprised of Blaqstarr and Mz Streamz, Kid Cudi, Diplo, A-Trak and the one and only Santogold who closed the show. I don't know who Mz. Streamz is but she did what she could (lol). Her dj Blaqstarr did his thing though. Kid Cudi came out after that and put it down to my surprise. While everyone was waiting for Ms. White to appear, Diplo and A-Trak rocked the house with a mixture of classic Hip Hop joints and some sick fusion of house/dance/hip hop stuff which they're known for. Santogold eventually took the stage and rocked the crowd performing the hottest cuts from her brilliant debut album. The hot and sweaty crowd left definitely pleased with no regrets at all. Peep the pictures below, videos to come in part 2.
