Santogold did a set at Hollywood & Highland today gratis. I went & below the cut are a few of the lovely, sometimes blurry photos. She really impressed all the clueless tourists who wandered in there after stepping into John Wayne's cement footprints at the Chinese theater next door and having their picture taken with like 5 different Marilyn Monroes.
here is the lovely Santogold performing with a ~beautiful~ CPK backdrop
her backup dancers were dope & on point and most importantly never ever ever smiled once

She did a signing immediately after the set. Her handlers said her voice was hoarse so she couldn't talk much. They also wouldn't really let people take pictures with her though I saw a few people get away with it. All pretty transparent code for "keep the line moving" but I didn't care because I looked like a mess after riding my bike to get there and frankly didn't have anything other to say than "thanks for the great set" and "would you hold up this sign."
One of her handlers asked what ONTD and I told him she is loved there. Show the love, ONTDers. Show it.
