Santogold: Get famous, lose your voice

One plus about living in San Francisco is we get to see the up-'n'-comers before they break. Which, to be even more specific, means we get to hear them before they ravage their vocal chords playing every damn festival, city, and even that wants in on the action. Case in point: Santogold, who was recently here as part of BFD. The gal's had to cancel a chunk of her current tour — not due to anything scandalous as drugs or booze, but for an old fashioned rest of her damaged vocal chords. Makes you think of how hard bands work these days once they hit that hype point. Santi’s MySpace post on the matter below. – Jennifer Maerz
