HellaCappella Indeed.

The Sacramento Bee has an interesting article today about the rise of female a cappella on our nation's campuses. The piece is largely a profile of The Spokes, a UC Davis group founded in 2004.

"This year we had 50 girls try out for three spots" sophomore Greer Shively says in the piece. "We know that this music is gaining in popularity and we want to start something that has not been done in Davis, certainly not something this big and mainstream."

If you're in the Davis area, check out The Spokes tonight in an annual concert they've dubbed HellaCappella.

The full Bee story is here.

Also, a clip of the Spokes holding out for a hero.
