Eleven Magazine is thrilled to introduce Evan Sult as its new Editor-In-Chief. Evan will be starting this month and the September issue of the magazine will be his first official issue. His reputation in town precedes him and he brings with him experience in all things important to Eleven Magazine, most importantly music.
Evan Sult arrived in Seattle at the University of Washington in 1991, right as the local music scene exploded internationally. He started writing and editing for The Glass Onion weekly arts section, established inside the school’s daily paper, and with some of those same conspirators also formed his first band, Harvey Danger. Post-college he balanced a job as assistant art director at The Rocket, Seattle’s legendary bygone music mag, and as an art director at Fantagraphics Comics, ’til Harvey Danger had a surprise hit radio song in “Flagpole Sitta.” He moved to Chicago in 2002 and started the band Bound Stems while continuing as a freelance
designer and editor. In 2008, he and his partner Paige Brubeck moved to St. Louis to start Sleepy Kitty, a two-piece rock band, and Sleepy Kitty Arts, a design and screenprinting concern on Cherokee Street.
Eleven is St. Louis’ definitive source for local and national music, community, and culture news, with a strong focus on the “local” piece. Founded in 2008 by students at Washington University, it has since outgrown its college roots to become St. Louis’ only free magazine dedicated to music, available at hundreds of locations region-wide. In 2011, ElevenPDX was established in Portland, OR as Eleven’s first sister publication.
