Bribe the bouncer. Buy a dozen bottles. Get a job behind the bar.
We here at Crossfade will personally do whatever's necessary to get our art-addicted asses past the velvet ropes at LIV on November 30. But you should probably just keep it legit and buy a pair of tickets. Right. Fucking. Now.

After all, the D.C. native is an inked member of Ricky Rozay's Maybach Music stable.

But Santigold ... Well, she hasn't hit the Beach since tag-teaming the Paris Theatre with Kid Cudi in November 2009. And with details surrounding the release of her long-awaited sophomore slab, American Dreaming, still sketchy, who knows if you'll have to wait another 24 months before you get another shot to "Go," "Shove It," and "Say Aha" with the punky Philly-bred party girl?
Don't risk it. Drop the cash. Get those tix.
Santigold and Wale as part of Dirty Hairy. Wednesday, November 30. LIV, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. The party starts at 11 p.m. and tickets cost $60 via wantickets.com. Call 305-674-4680 or visit livnightclub.com.
