Hey all,

Thought I’d just add our concert info while everyone was at it.

Check out the new Allegrettos this Friday at 6:30 in the Photonics center, room 206 (you know the big one), as well as a bunch of our new songs, including music by Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, Estelle ft. Kanye, Ben Harper, and Fefe Dobson! We’re also hosting Northeastern’s Treble on Huntingon all-female a cappella group.

Tickets are $7 general admission, $5 for students, and $3 for members of other a cappella groups.

It’s gonna be dope.

Check out this clip from Good Morning America about college a cappella…

I don’t know about you, but I haven’t seen much mainstream coverage of collegiate a cappella. ¬†And other than the occasional Backstreet Boys/’N Sync tune a cappella usually doesn’t enter the mainstream-popular-music world (unless you count Rockappella, but I wouldn’t). ¬†What do you think? ¬†Can college a cappela, or just a cappella, go mainstream?

I’ll have to narrow it down more. But that’s where it stands as of now. We’ll know more once everything is recorded. And I’ll be doing some traveling with my engineer, Joe and some old ribbon mics to record as many as I have time for in the first couple of weeks of December.¬†

Unfortunately, it looks like none of the college groups around Boston got picked. ¬†Maybe next time. ¬†There were a TON of entries. ¬†If you’re looking for some procrastination material hit up youtube and search “Ben Folds a cappella.” ¬†Watch out, it could drive you crazy.
