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 The New York Times Magazine, Spin, Hyperallergic, Paste Magazine, Edge Magazine, eMusic/Wondering Sound, Kill Screen, The Fanzine, Craftsmanship Quarterly, 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 institutions such as 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. His manuscript Wolf Intervals, ten years in the making, was recently a semifinalist in the Fence Modern Poets Series.
