Brian Howe is an arts and culture journalist, critic, and editor covering music, visual art, dance, theater, books, video games, and interesting people and places. He is the managing arts and culture editor of INDY Week, the progressive weekly serving Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, NC.
In addition to writing for Pitchfork for fifteen years and counting, he has also contributed to Spin, Hyperallergic, Paste Magazine, Edge Magazine, eMusic/Wondering Sound, Kill Screen, The Fanzine, Very Short List, Creative Loafing's The Spectator, and others. His critical writing has appeared in anthologies including The Poetics of American Song Lyrics and Late Century Dream. He has worked as a copywriter for arts and culture institutions like Duke Performances, where he also interviewed dozens of world-class performing artists as editor of the blog The Thread.
His poetry, sound art, and videos have appeared in journals, chapbooks, readings, and festivals often enough that writing about himself in the third person does not even faze him. He capriciously runs the Wax Wroth Reading Series. In his stray hairs of spare time, he's writing tiny poems in a book called Cloud Forest and plucking tenderly busted scraps of music from the air.
