These will be the first Santogold live dates in the US since SXSW and Coachella where her performances became highlights of the festivals. She will also perform at this year's Lollapalooza and Central Park SummerStage.
Downtown/Lizard King released Santogold's self-titled debut album in April and it instantly became one of 2008's most acclaimed albums. (they include a quote but it's from the same pub that called Moose Elliot a genius, so we didn't want to prejudice anyone reading this, until they hear for themselves).
