It’s time to start thinking of what punk jam you’ve always dreamed of belting out onstage, as it’s the return of one of our favorite CZF fundraisers: PUNK ROCK KARAOKE!

Details: Thursday, January 9th at 8pm at Beauty Bar (1444 W. Chicago Ave.)! 21+ event (we’re sorry, younger CZF friends!). Hosted by the great Marisa Overton & Tara Anley! $5 donation to support CZF 2014! Tell Facebook you’re going here!

How many Operation Ivy songs can be sung in a single night? Who will lead the singalong to “T.V. Party” this year? How many photobooth strips will you take? Only time will tell! SEE YOU THERE, PUNX.
