Phillips, Hayley G. “San Francisco-born Pop-Up Magazine Lands at the Lincoln Theatre Tuesday.” Washingtonian [Washington DC] 28 Feb. 2017: n. pag. Print.
This article covers, a performance of Pop-Up Magazine at the Lincoln Theatre two month ago. A pop-up magazine is also known as a live magazine that performs all of its contents therefore its producers, writers, filmmakers, actors, and photographer as well as radio host take the stage and perform the content that would otherwise be found in a magazine. The performance is about 90 minutes and is made up of about 10 people. The founder of Pop-Up Magazine, Douglas McGray, thought the Lincoln theatre would be a great venue for the show because he grew up in Washington DC well into his 20s and felt like it would be received well in this area, he said “DC is such a smart crowd, full of curious people”. McGray has brought the Pop-Up Magazine to venues in DC as well as San Francisco and he thinks the Lincoln Theatre is a “nice fit” for his show.
This article is useful to my research because I able to learn more in detail about the current acts and talent being booked at the Lincoln Theatre a bit more in detail rather than just looking at the show schedule on the theatre’s website. From this article I am able to learn about what type of talent the Lincoln Theatre is presently booking, what type of shows are being hosted and whom are in the Theatre looking to attract the most.
