Bacchantae And Brown Bear Necessities Perform On Low Steps

brown bear necessities


An a Capella aficionado visited the joint concert of a Capella groups at schools that share “Bears” as a mascot. Alliteration with the letter “b,” punny group names, and a bucketload of talent guaranteed. 

Last night, Barnard Bacchantae and the Brown Bear Necessities took to Low Steps for a short concert, serenading the school back from spring break.

Due to scheduling errors, the concert had to take place outside, so the singers were a little chilly (especially since the Bears perform in button-ups and suspenders–no jackets allowed, apparently), but the two groups’ performances were heartwarming. Backlit by the glow of Butler Library, the Bear Necessities performed Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls,” The Weeknd’s “Wicked Games,” Trey Songz’s “Bottoms Up,” and “The Circle of Life” from the Lion King, and Bacchantae performed “F**kin Perfect” by P!nk, the Civil Wars’ “Barton Hollow,” and Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors.” The groups drew a small crowd that progressively grew as the sounds of their voices echoed around campus–despite the cold, the Low location was ideal for getting the attention of people walking up and down the steps.

The Bears are currently touring around the East Coast, and as well as performing in New York City, they are making stops in Baltimore, Washington DC, and Chapel Hill. You can check out other songs on their Youtube channel, and be sure to check out Bacchantae’s as well.
