In conjunction with the exhibition SCARYOKE!!! organized by Dan Kois.

SCARYOKE!!! Fantasy Draft

Wednesday, December 4: 8 pm
apexart, 291 Church St, NYC

We're bringing some of NYC's top culture critics together to take the SCARYOKE!!! Challenge but we're switching up the rules; we're giving each singer a chance to pick their song.

One by one, we'll draw names from a hat, and each performer will sing the song of his or her choice. But once a song's been sung, it's off the board -- so other performers can't choose it anymore. Sure, it's easy to pick when there are 15 songs to choose from. But what if there are only 10? 5? 3? Exhibition organizer Dan Kois will fall on his SCARYOKE!!! sword and will automatically take the 15th pick.

You don't want to miss this.
