KCRW is proud to present Pop-Up Magazine‘s Escape Issue on Thursday, September 26, a live magazine—a night of new, true stories about the fascinating world around us. Each issue is different from the last, with photography, film, radio, and original music mixed together and performed live onstage by a cast of talented people.

We could all use a little escape. From politics. From the past. From hostile countries and climate change. From the Internet. From negativity. Maybe even from ourselves. Join Pop-Up Magazine for an immersive night of storytelling devoted to escapes big and small, daring and mundane, physical and mental. Contributors include comedian Jordan Carlos (HBO’s Divorce; Black Mirror; WNYC’s Adulting); poet Sarah Kay (Project VOICE); writers Chris Duffy (Wyatt Cenac’s Problem Areas), Clio Chang (JezebelThe New Republic); musician Left at London; photographers Lucas Foglia (International Center of Photography, SF MOMA) and Lisette Poole (TimeThe AtlanticThe New York Times).
