Santigold Mounts Summer Tour, Coming To The Warfield In May

No, that's not a typo - the notorious Santogold has redubbed herself Santigold. While she hasn't confirmed the rationale, general speculation is that it was an effort to resolve a law suit that had been dogging the songstress. Still, all of that is terribly mundane news - Prince basically took the glamor out of name changes years ago. Far more important is that Santigold has planned a summer tour, and will be stopping by the Warfield on May 21st. Tickets have yet to go on-sale, so keep your eyes peeled.

We have to admit, it took us a little bit of time to warm up to Santigold's sound, and we weren't without our doubts the first time we listened to the artist's self titled record. That being said, it's an addictive little bugger, and over the past year it got under our skin to the point where it now sees regular rotation in our playlist. Combine that with the fact that Santigold apparently delivers a massive live show, and well, we highly recommend that you get yourself in the door.
