Philly-raised singer Santigold is praised for her genre fluidity, hued urban style, and avant-garde creative choices—such as an interactive video for her single "Can't Get Enough of Myself," which highlights self-absorption. Her February release, 99¢, was the highly anticipated follow-up to 2012's Master of My Make-Believe. Previously named Santogold, the indefinable mezzo-soprano gained exposure by touring with rapper MIA—to whom she's commonly compared—in 2007, Coldplay in 2008, and then embarking on her own Goldrush Tour soon after. This show has been a long time coming for Portland Santigold fans: Her We Buy Gold tour stop was originally scheduled for April 6 at the Wonder Ballroom, then was moved to the Crystal to allow for more space. After becoming ill that week, Santi postponed the date to May 10 at the same venue. I'm not mad about the switch, as long as I hear "Shove It" and up-tempo rallying anthem "Banshee"—with little-to-no lip-synching. JENNI MOORE
