Pitchfork Reviews: Public Or Private? By The Columbia Kingsmen

The Kingsmen serve monotonous “doo-wahs” and not much else on their uninspired Spotify debút. At least the blazers are out of sight.  The Kingsmen want you to know that they’re good guys. In fact, they desperately need you to know that. Their performances and song choices, from 50’s doo-wop to modern pop, all scream one […]

An Arbitrary Ranking Of A Cappella Groups

Do you care about a cappella on campus? Neither do we, but it’s final concert season, and we thought we’d take a look at the different groups on campus who are funded by our student life fees and air out some of our gripes. Disclaimer (added 6:45 pm): This post is entirely satirical, entirely based […]

Kingsmen Play Cupid

The Kingsmen, one of Columbia’s all male a capella groups, have been known to serenade unsuspecting ladies with their sweet, sweet music. On Monday, they continued their legacy when they helped a high-school student ask his girlfriend to prom. The result is a combination of cringe-worthy awkwardness and extreme cuteness. For all the singing and […]

Kingsmen Bring the Love

The Kingsmen followed their annual tradition yesterday by interrupting classes with song-o-grams.  After sneaking into a class to catch one of their performances, Bwog stalked the group to more serenades, really learning the power of large groups of people in brightly colored jackets.  They explained that friends or members suggest people to serenade and provide […]

A Cappella Cupids

A morning lecture in Barnard today was unexpectedly interrupted—by love. One lucky lady was serenaded by the Columbia Kingsmen, as captured in this amateur video below.  Look through the wobbly lens into the face of passionate devotion, captured in 45 seconds or less. Bwog wishes a happy Valentine’s Day to all, even those who didn’t […]

Kingsmen and LUCHA on That Not-So-Funny Flyer

A few weeks ago, the Columbia Kingsmen, an all-male acapella group, posted provocative flyers around campus to publicize their concert. One flyer pictured a member of the group with the caption, “Rape Me.” Last night, LUCHA, a Columbia social activist organization, sent Bwog their public statement in response to the advertisement. Soon after, Lauren Herold, […]
