Alvin Eng Merging spoken word and acoustic punk rock raconteur styles, Alvin Eng's Here Comes Johnny Yen Again (or How I Kicked Punk) explores the impact of opium on the Chinese Diaspora as well as NYC's punk/counterculture world through the dual prisms of William S. Burroughs' character, 'Johnny Yen'––immortalized in Iggy Pop and David Bowie's song, Lust For Life––and his own Grandfather's opium overdose on the streets of NYC's Chinatown.
