On Thursday (July 16), the Sprite Corner opened up shop in NYC with a private concert by Long Beach rapper Vince Staples. Before hitting the stage, he took part in a Q&A with Miss Info while the small crowd also enjoyed opening acts Bishop Nehru and Joey Fatts.

Located at 188 Bowery (on the corner of Spring Street) in New York City, The Sprite Corner is pop-up experience that features all Sprite everything with a store front made to look like a bodega.

Staples’ private concert—he performed cuts from his Summertime ’06 album—was the first of a number of events that will go down at the venue over the next two months. Programming will include cooking classes with Eddie Huang, freestyle battles, movies screenings, comedy shows and more.
