LCD Soundsystem played Pepsi’s NYC Kola House opening (pics/video)
Taking a break from recording their new album, LCD Soundsystem played the opening of posh new Kola House in Manhattan's Meatpacking District for a crowd of a few hundred or so invited guests, including Swizz Beats and JB Smoov. What is the Kola House? It's a club/restaurant/lounge/event space owned by Pepsi:
"We wanted to create a modern hub for consumers to share social and immersive experiences that were anchored in the exploration of our cola's artisanal craft and flavor," shared Seth Kaufman, Chief Marketing Officer, PepsiCo North America Beverages. "The Kola House represents a new space for us to support our consumer-first approach to drive authenticity and innovation around our beverage offerings and ideals."
Kola House's experimental and elemental themes honoring the kola nut will be brought to life through resident cocktail curator Alex Ott. Ott's unrivaled background in flavor chemistry and his superior knowledge of food and beverage pairings and global palates make him the ideal mastermind behind the development of Kola House's cocktails and elixirs. A full artisanal menu from a rising resident executive chef will also offer specialty plates inspired by the kola nut.
You can check out Kola House's menu and fancy soda pairings here.
This was the official opening, but they held events at the Kola House during Fashion Week, including one with Dev Hynes performing. Anyone get invited to this show (probably the smallest NYC show they've played since Tribeca Grand??)?
The band's next show is at Austin City Limits Fest. A few more Instagram pics/video are below.
