For the uninitiated, it can be difficult to understand why people love a cappella. Heck, even for those of us who do actively enjoy it, it can be difficult to put into words why we enjoy this art form so. While we’ll never have a truly comprehensive list of everything cool about a cappella, 200 Reasons to Love A Cappella is our best attempt at assembling a list of what makes it great.
Reason #67: Late Night Shows
Performing at the collegiate level is a unique environment for appealing to a free-thinking, edgy, late night audience. Nowhere is this dynamic better on display than at a late night campus show.
Late night shows are often scheduled as such to occur long past any academic commitments of the day, and occasionally as alternative programming to draw listeners out of their dorm rooms and out of the frat house beer pong tournament to join some music in a communal setting. Sometimes raunchy, often funny, and always full of good music, such shows are natural opportunity for people to come together, enjoy one another’s company, and bask in the pleasure of listening to live music.
I love it!
