Pop-Up Magazine

Pop-Up Magazine is a “live magazine,” an evening of true stories, photography, documentary film, and radio, presented live on stage by some of the country’s top storytellers and artists. Stories are accompanied by visuals, recorded audio, and live music. All brand new, nothing published or aired before. Past shows have included best-selling authors like Susan Orlean, Michael Pollan, and Alice Walker; Oscar-winning filmmakers; public radio personalities from shows like This American Life  and Radiolab; famed photographers like Larry Sultan, Richard Misrach, and Autumn de Wilde; and artists and actors from Beck to John C. Reilly.

Our theme is no theme. Science, music, politics, art, business, food, literature, design, and nature — all in one show. We don’t record it, so you have to be there to see it. Original live music by the Magik*Magik Orchestra and special guests.

The line-up includes:

Matt Black, Magnum Photographer
Laurel Braitman, Writer and Author of "Animal Madness"
Tracy Clayton and Heben Nigatu, Hosts of the Buzzfeed Podcast "Another Round"
Sam Green, Oscar-Nominated Director of "The Weather Underground"
