Cult albums only come across a few times in our lifetimes, in 2008 Santi White also knows as Santigold brought a unique sound to the masses with her debut album Santogold. The album was a cross-genre work of art featuring influences of new wave to reggae themed productions from the likes of producers such as Diplo, Chuck Treece and Switch. The album made its rounds among the blogosphere to acclaimed reactions.
Fast forward to ten years later and the first stop of the tour right here in our backyard. Santigold ripped through her set with her own charismatic vibe adorned in all gold suit which flowed from one end of the stage to the other.
“How many bands don’t make it to Denver because of the roads?” she asked the crowd as she described other times she has stopped in Denver (and maybe a jab at The 1975).
The show was short and sweet, but ultimately satisfying our thirst to hear the amazing album played in its entirety taking us back and giving us a nostalgic vibe for just one night.
