Well ZWICKITY-ZWICKITY-ZWACK! That’s the sound of FFOK unpacking the crate and rolling out its new FFOK GUEST CURATORIAL SERIES! Where we bring in friendly folks from the world of Visual Art, Business, Sports, and the Seattle City Council to canvass their big fat brains for big fat recommendations for 10 or more new selections for the FFOK songbook – and then rename the night in their honor.
This week – it’s JENNIFER ZWICK ORGAN KARAOKE! That’s right – we handed the reigns over to everyone’s favorite Photographer / Sculptor / Author / Drawer / Microprocessor Tinkerer / Video Artist / Banjoist / Composer / Lyricist / Board Game Designer / Terpsichore Impersonator / Tetris Champ / Dancer / Symmetry Enthusiast / Brand New Momma / Beacon Hillbilly.
And The Lady Zwick did not disappoint, hitting on many Classic FFOK Principles we hold dear, including Local / Regional selections, TV Commercials, jazz standards, forgotten musicals, Cowboy bar sing-alongs, Disney trainwrecks / money pits, non-English-language entries, Troy McClure, and Christian Bale, Christian Bale, Christian Bale. Also – Jennifer Zwick!

So come on down to Vermillion Gallery and Bar (1508 11the Ave) this Thursday, December 16th from 9pm to 1am, climb the ladder to the grown-up diving board, and jump right into JZOK! Jennifer Zwick cardboard masks will be provided for your incognito / Shakespearean-Molierian / drag queen / Being John Malkovich needs (and you have those needs! I know! I remember that conversation. You were drunk: I was not. I remember EVERYTHING. Plus: the tape was rolling.). It is as if you are karaoke-ing your face.
