SXSW Recap / The Fader Fort 3.15.08
Santogold came out first rocked the hell out of the place and while there is certainly plenty of room for M.I.A comparisons she completely held her own. She had her two back up dancers that never cracked a smile and asked the crowd to "MySpace her" with a name for the duo. Spank Rock was certainly the grimiest show of the week although it was completely expected. He was joined onstage by Santogold at one point and even thought the set was quick it was easily one of the best I saw all week. 2 Live Crew was kind of a let down so we took off. No Luke?
