But the pop-up model isn’t just for TV-themed bars and exotic late-night eats anymore: behold, Pop-Up Magazine, a show born in that cauldron of innovation, San Francisco. Each “issue” of the traveling Pop-Up Magazine features new, never-before-heard stories that are presented alongside photography, film, and music (provided by the rock world’s go-to collaborators, the Magik*Magik Orchestra). The show isn’t recorded or shared online, so you’ve got to be there to see it. For its upcoming D.C. visit, Pop-Up Magazine enlisted a who’s-who of storytellers for the city’s intelligentsia, including The Atlantic science writer Ed Yong, producer Yowei Shaw of NPR’s InvisibiliaThe Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks author Rebecca SklootCall Your Girlfriend podcast co-host Ann FriedmanWIRED senior writer Emily Dreyfuss, and many others. Ever want to listen to your favorite podcast or read your favorite mag in a swanky theater and have a drink with the host afterward? Here’s your chance.
