The Artist Formerly Known As Santogold
It’s old news by now that Santogold has changed her name to Santigold, and while Santi White (Santigold) isn’t doing much talking, there’s been mention of a lawsuit. According to various blogs, lawyers for a 1980s infomercial dude named Santo “Santo Gold” Rigatuso filed a lawsuit claiming name infringement. In actuality, the artist formerly known as Santogold is probably the best thing that could have happened to Rigatuso, who most people have probably never heard of or had completely forgotten existed in the first place. At any rate, Santigold will be performing at the Empire Events Center on Friday, May 22nd. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 day-of-show. Check out Santigold's MySpace page here.
