George Chen

George Chen was a musician, writer, and event organizer before finding his place in standup comedy. He ran the weekly showcase Cynic Cave at Lost Weekend Video from 2012-2016, known as one of San Francisco's comedy gems. Now based in Los Angeles, George has been putting on shows at Giant Robot Gallery and Real Pain Fine Arts.

He has performed at Sled Island Festival in Calgary, Rogue Island Comedy Festival, Nevada City Film Festival, North Carolina Comedy Festival, SFMoMA, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, as well as multiple appearances at SF Sketchfest and Put Your Hands Together (live show/podcast). Chen hosts the documentary discussion podcast Sup Doc, worked on the award-winning satirical bill-splitting app EquiTable, and appeared on HBO's Looking.

This is the double cassette release show for The Word Origami Deluxe Edition (on Deathbomb Arc). It compiles a standup comedy set from label founder George Chen with a series of "comedy remixes" that Chen asked friends to make (with minimal instruction). The resulting compilation includes members of Deerhoof, Clipping., Black Spirituals, Spencer Owen, Headboggle, Dis Fantasy, Jerkagram, Chen Santa Maria, Mike Shiflet, Conscious Summary, Chaki, and Future/Hunter. A truly weird object (limited to 100) that will be available at this show (and any discerning cassette retailers).

Somnambulists

Warren Ng is an experimental musician based in Brooklyn, NY and originally from San Francisco who has performed and released numerous recordings under the names Somnambulists and This Invitation, all linked by an interest in minimalism, string drone, and the hidden internal hum of the electric guitar. 



Recent activity has also included involvement in collaborative film + live score performance works presented at experimental film festivals and exhibitions in New York and San Francisco including an expanded cinema series co- presented by the Microscope Gallery & The Whitney Museum (2016); Mono No Aware IX and X (2015 & 2016); and the SF Cinematheque's Crossroads 2016 & 2018 (presented at the SFMOMA).

This is the West Coast tape release show for Somnambulists’ From Field to Factory.
