Better Than: Every show I've been to this year. Seriously.

It's hard to imagine a show living up to as much hype as Santigold's Phoenix debut. The show sold out well in advance -- propelled by the strength of Santi White's combination of hip-hop, electronica, new wave, pop, reggae, and punk. But could her collective of musicians and dancers live up to the expectations?
