Pop-Up Magazine doing “live magazine” tour, coming to NYC soon
Pop-Up Magazine is a "live magazine" concept that recently debuted in LA. Promising "a night of true stories, films, photography, and radio" from a lineup of writers, radio people, photographers and filmmakers, the show features a lot of interesting personalities and should be a unique kind of live experience. The tour comes to NYC for a show at Kings Theatre on November 17, and tickets are on sale now.
The lineup changes from city to city, and the NYC lineup is pretty cool. It features This American Life host Ira Glass, MTV News editor and The First Collection of Criticism by a Living Female Rock Critic author Jessica Hopper, documentary filmmaker Jamie Meltzer, writers Mychal Denzel Smith and Joshua Bearman, and music from Magik Magik Orchestra, among others.
You can check out the full lineup for the NYC show, all tour dates, and a video of Pop-Up Magazine's creators discussing the project back when it was created, plus a "sneak peek" video of this tour, below.
