Santigold 

When: Wed., Dec. 12, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $27.50
Before she was the queen of weird, 36-year-old Santi White was quietly penning hits for mainstream pop stars like Ashlee Simpson. Perhaps that allowed her, as a solo artist, to freely create her own reality. As Santigold, the Philadelphia native draws from all sorts of sources — her past work as the Gwen Stefani-ish frontwoman of rock band Stiffed, plus electronica, new wave, dub, and other genres — to create something that’s both experimental and accessible. Her most recent release, Master of My Make-Believe, isn’t the most cohesive of albums, but it does contain several hits, including “Disparate Youth” and “The Keepers.” Live, Santigold’s aesthetic is vividly brought to life with a full band, backup dancers, and bizarre, colorful costumes. At base, it’s a fun dance party — albeit one in Santigold’s twisted fantasy wonderland. On Wednesday, Dec. 12, at The Fox Theater (1807 Telegraph Ave., Oakland), with White Arrows. 8 p.m., $27.50.
