Pop Up Magazine!!
We’re thrilled to announce an awesome upcoming event that we’ve had the pleasure of helping to produce. It’s called Pop Up Magazine and you (and all your friends) have got to come.
What the heck is Pop-Up Magazine? It is an evening of talking, film, reading, radio, photography, and interviews. All short, fast, mixed up, and served to an audience at the amazing Brava Theater in San Francisco's Mission district, with a party to follow. The night will unfold like a magazine. Short stuff in the front, longer stuff in the back.
Pop Up Magazine will be one night only, Wednesday April 22nd, so GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!!
