Almost 30 years have passed since the cultural institution Max’s Kansas City closed its doors. Andy Warhol once stated that it was “the exact place where pop art met pop life,” while William S. Burroughs credited it as “the intersection of it all.” Inspired by this his- tory, the Max’s Kansas City Co. opened Extra Place in January of 2010 as a venue for live music and private events. Located beneath the former home of CBGB, with an entrance on the storied alley Extra Pl. (off of 1st Street between the Bowery and 2nd Avenue), Extra Place by the Max’s Kansas City Company renews these hallowed grounds as a venue for the industries of art, music, and fashion.
