M.I.A. at Soho House Satellite Nights

Genetically engineered plants, computer-generated children and artistic prosthetics in this week's look at the web

With their first NYC foray into offsite events, members-only club Soho House launched M.I.A.’s new album Matangi this week. And they did so in Bushwick, Brooklyn. With a rapturous performance including many of her hits, the new work tantalized with the lyrical power listeners have come to expect. Soho House has made a name for their in-house events and their top cultural class attendees and this time—with partners Swatch, SPIN Magazine and Opening Ceremony—they demonstrated they know how to throw a party even if it’s not at home.
