Santigold: She's a lady.
​Last time Santigold (a.k.a., Santi White, formerly Santogold) was in Miami, she played at Ultra Music Festival back in March. Unfortunately, she was relegated to an early slot on the first day of the festival, so she played to a sparse crowd. We missed her set all together because it never crossed our minds that the festival organizers would waste her talent by putting her on so early. As we were picking up our press passes, we could hear Santi singing "Creator" from a distance. By the time we arrived to the main stage, Perry Farrell had taken the stage.

But thanks to Diesel, the semi-Euro trashy clothing brand, we'll have another chance to see her perform live. The eclectic artist will hit the Paris Theatre (550 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach) alongside "Day 'n' Nite" singer Kid Cudi November 17. Best part of it all, it's free! The catch? You've got to snatch tickets at one of its stores starting Saturday, November 14 through Tuesday, November 17:

  • Diesel Lincoln Road (933 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach)
  • Diesel Avenutra (19501 Biscayne Boulevard, Aventura)
  • Diesel Miami Beach (801 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach)
  • Bloomingdale's Aventura (men's and women's Diesel Departments) (19555 Biscayne Boulevard, Aventura)

According to the press release, there are a few more (bigger) acts that will be announced soon. Cudi and Santi seem good reason enough to go as is, so we wonder who else will be added on the bill. The event is part of the Diesel U:Music tour that has already made stops in Berlin, New York, London, Paris and Tokyo. The tour wraps November 25 in Sydney.
