LIVE: SPIN LIVE at Stubbs with Santigold, Big KRIT, SXSW
Once again, our friends at SPIN were back at Stubbs for their annual South By Southwest show. The event, capped off by Best Coast and Santigold is hands down one of our favorite of the festival. This year, hip-hop took center stage as Big KRIT rocked the indoor stage, along with Couch Sessions favorites G-Side (who rocked our showcase the previous day) along with Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire?. Another highlight was seeing our favorite Spoek Mathambo?? rock the outdoor stage along with our new favorite band Escort.
It was the disco house stylings of Escort that really got our mojo working and Santigold still looks damn good as she began her set with the upbeat track “Go,” and let loose on her newest single “Disparate Youth.” Looking a tad more mid-2000s hipster than her glam look at the Woodies a day earlier, Santigold make sure people knew she was back for good.
As always, our people at SPIN known how to throw a party, and the lineup at this year’s Stubbs event was as good as ever. Check it.
