Earlier this year, we told you that stylish and experimental pop queen Santigold is bringing her We Buy Gold Tour to Marathon Music Works on April 22, marking her first-ever headlining show in Nashville. If you’re like us, you’ve been bumping her new album 99¢ non-stop, so why miss the chance to hear her killer jams in person? You can still grab tickets to see her, along with support from rising hip hop artist DonMonique, for just $25. If you’d rather attend this dance party with a few extra dollars in your pocket, you can enter to win a pair of free tickets to the show on us. Sound like a deal?

In 2007, it was hard to go anywhere without hearing Santigold‘s (then named Santogold) ridiculously infectious track “L.E.S. Artistes.” The success of her self-titled debut album earned her critical acclaim and spots opening for huge touring acts like Björk, Coldplay and Kanye West. After releasing her follow-up Master of My Make-Believe, and teaming up with Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs for their stellar track “Go!”, she spent months touring non-stop across the globe to massive crowds before heading back into the studio.
Although nine years have passed since she made her debut on the pop scene, not much has changed when it comes to her ability to make infectious hooks and inspired beats. In February, the Philadelphia-based producer dropped her third studio album, 99¢, which is largely centered around the music industry’s complicated relationship with consumerism. It’s being celebrated as one of her strongest and most experimental releases ever, which is a big deal for an artist as original as Santigold. Make sure you’re in attendance to see her blow the roof off Marathon Music Works later this month.
21-year-old Brooklyn rapper DonMonique has been making waves in the hip-hop scene since she dropped her debut EP, Thirst Trap, last year. Inspired by artists like Biggie and 50 Cent, her aggressive but feminine style and funky flow has made her a favorite of rap fans looking for something new and exciting. Her fun debut single, “Pilates (Kendall, Kylie, Miley),” helped to make her a star of the blogosphere only a year after starting her rap career. Hip-hop as good as this rarely gets put in the spotlight here in Nashville, so make sure you check out DonMonique before she explodes onto the mainstream.
