Welcome to the new AcaVids. If you missed it, there’s a new system and new team in place for AcaVids, which will now be brought to you every single Monday, without fail. For more on the folks joining the team, click here.
So, I am excited to kick things off this first Monday in February with a tribute to last night’s Super Bowl. As I did after last year’s Super Bowl, the segment today will honor the victorious city (sorry, Deke, a cappella’s biggest Niners fan!): Baltimore. This has proven surprisingly difficult, as there are not many groups in Baltimore with an online presence. C’mon, a cappella people, let’s get “Charm City” on the vocal map!
Meanwhile, here’s what I was able to find. If you know of some other groups in the Baltimore area, please feel free to comment/share links below, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me at @acatribe.
The Acaholics are the only post-collegiate group in Baltimore with a web presence. This clip was from their performance at UMBC this past fall.
The Johns Hopkins University Octopodes have been a good group for a long time. Here’s them performing Ke$ha’s “Animal” last spring.
The UMBC Cleftomaniacs were founded in 2006 by CASA Ambassador Jeeves Murphy. Check out their cover of Jessie J’s “Domino” from last Spring.
Have a great week, everyone!
