The blog shortcut, September 25 edition

Santi White, of Santogold fame.

Next stop: the blogosphere.

Backbeat Online brings you Q&As with a pair of intriguing acts: Santi White, also known as Santogold, who's among the most buzzed-about performers currently treading Terra Firma, and Georg Holm of the fascinating Icelandic band Sigur Ros. Additionally, Dave Herrera passes along the latest information about scene veteran Sharon Rawles, who continues to struggle with health issues.

Cafe Society is busy, too. Read about the transformation of The Falcon, a joint near the Gothic Theatre, into Moe's Original BBQ, and the rise of Abode in the space recently vacated by Pie Hole. Then take a gastronomical tour of Deli Zone with Jonathan Shikes. It's a rye review. -- Michael Roberts
