Santigold Announces U.S. Tour Dates

Santigold's 'Master of My Make Believe' lp cover

Santigold kicks off her American tour at the end of this month, according to OKP. Are you going? Hopefully we are, here are the dates below. Check out what Ms. Santi White told the Wall Street Journal about creating her vision and a dangerous boat ride with debatable culture vulture Diplo that spurred her sophomore solo album Master of My Make Believe, out May 1:

“I’m really interested in making art all over the place in so many ways,” White said in an interview Thursday before her appearance at The Woodies. “That’s why I’m so hands-on with so many different aspects. I do my music, but I also do choreography and design the costumes and direct my video because that’s fun to me. The more things I can get my hands on, the more fun for me.”

“We were flying, like flying, and I was sitting cross-legged and every wave we hit my body would just fly up,” she said. “Like, it was so dangerous. I was just like, ‘Ahhhh!’ Waves were crashing and there’s a little stereo and it was blasting music, but it was distorted. It was just like a really dangerous element, but it was also exciting and at the same time there was all this beauty around, and I was just like, ‘This is what my record should feel like.”
