I’m a big Santigold fan and was super excited to shoot this show. I listen to Santi’s debut album all the time and really dig her latest release, The Master of my Make Believe. Her shows are always lots of fun and have lots of things going on on stage with her dancers and musicians. This show was no different (although it would have been nice to shoot the horse costume they brought on stage around the 5th song!).

Lighting here was a bit of an issue. It was mostly backlit and colored, so it was hard to get a decent color balance. Santi and her dancers are VERY active on stage and there just wasn’t enough light onstage to really do their show justice in the photos. Like I tweeted just after leaving this show, “My kingdom for a decently lit Santigold show!”
