West of Lenin & The Panel Jumper Present Comic Book Themed Digital Variety Event

Sadly, the Covid-19 Washington Stay-at-Home Order required the cancellation of The Panel Jumper **LIVE** Chapter IX originally scheduled for the evening of Friday, May 8th at West of Lenin. Undaunted, and without missing a beat, The Panel Jumper set to work retooling and rewiring their bi-annual event into something they cannot wait for you view from the safety of your own home!

For this first foray into their digitally distributed comic book-themed event they offer you the sonic eccentricities of musician Ron Hexagon, a recently unearthed Community Access Panel Jumper video short called "Cole's Corner" (featuring Rachel Jackson of Vox Fabuli Puppets). International award-winning solo performer L. Nicol Cabe shares her poignant and poisonous perspective as a maturing nerd and writer/director/performer José Amador introduces us to his noir detective comic book alter-ego, Beigey P.I. They will also have fresh new sketches, thoughtful think pieces and a surprise or two. Please join hosts, Ben Laurance and Cole Hornaday for The Panel Jumper **LIVE-STREAMING** and celebrate nerd culture in all its myriad forms! Produced in collaboration with West of Lenin, this rare revelry of Seattle-based talent will leave you giddy and inspired by all their geek community has to offer.
