Santigold at MHOW in January (more by Bao Nguyen)
Santigold

Santigold, who recently released her new album, Master of My Make-Believe, and is currently touring in support of it, is stopping in NYC TONIGHT (5/14) at Irving Plaza for a free Samsung Mobile USA-sponsored show. RSVP is closed but we're giving away a pair of tickets. Details on how to enter to win are below.

If you can't make it to the show, you'll be able to stream the entire thing live at the Samsung Mobile USA facebook. The show will feature special guest appearances from Pharrell Williams and SNL's Andy Samberg, who wrote the Lonely Island song "After Party" which Santigold sings on. Doors for tonight's show open at 7 and the show starts at 8.

In related news, Santigold is one of the many contributors to the new Amadou and Mariam album, Folila, which came out last month. She co-wrote and sings on the album's opening track, "Dougou Badia." You can stream that track below. Amadou and Mariam return to Central Park Summerstage this summer.

Santigold will also play Governors Ball next month.

Is it me, or is she kinda hot? Not hot like KBK's titties hot, more like wild child hot.

Andy Samberg went onstage in character as Shy Ronny. It was fun.

event was SO well organized, love when that happens. free food/drinks, no crowd, guaranteed entry.

Samberg is not funny & he's egotistical to boot.
Those digital shorts are trying to be shocking, but fail at that also.

props to samsung for having a FULL open bar (i.e. cans/bottles of beer, cocktails, etc.). usually it's just one stupid sponsor like bacardi slinging their crap

fuck Samsung you losers

Posted by Anonymous | May 15, 2012 2:18 PM

us losers were drinking free beer, eating free mini burgers/BLTs/sushi/risotto balls, and enjoying free live music with no hassle last night. not gonna disagree with 'fuck samsung,' but if you think free beer/food/live music is bad then you're fucked

Posted by LOSERS ROX | May 15, 2012 2:28 PM

I enjoyed the free beer, and eating free mini burgers, BLTs, sushi& risotto balls. Then I walked the fuck out. Fuck Samsung.

Pretty sure Santigold is living off the residuals from the one "Bud Light Lime" commercial they always run in the summer. Never met an actual fan of hers.

her albums are pretty decent. not incredible, but not bad. i'd def. see her for free, but not for $$

You're kidding yourself if you don't think Santigold is huge. She's worked w/ Diplo, Beastie Boys, Karen O, Spank Rock, Lonely Island, Major Lazer, not to mention the whole Jay-Z sample. A lot of people would pay to see her.
