Samsung Mobile USA reached five million Facebook “likes” and rewarded it fans by throwing a free Santigold concert in NYC. Last night (May 14th), the “L.E.S. Artistes” singer, and her two swagged out dancers, rocked Irving Plaza performing past hits and new joints from her latest album, Master of My Make-Believe.
The 1000 or so deep mix of specially invited guests (it also streamed live on Samsung’s Facebook) made up a diverse crowd that got to see Santigold’s fresh live show, which featured special guests Pharrell Williams and Saturday Night Live’s Andy Samberg. Pharrell made a quick cameo to drop some suspect high notes and perform “My Drive Thru” while Samberg hit the stage and acted a fool a few songs later dressed in his “Shy Ronnie” SNL character.
Santigold also made sure to periodically shout out Samsung and take pics of the crowd with her Samsung Galaxy Note. Free liquor and food made the event a win from jump, but Santigold’s energetic show made the night a special treat. We’re still confused about the “horse” on stage, though.
