A CAPELLA | Eight Beat Measure 

Often when I'm driving in my car I will sing Jimmy Page's guitar solos a capella, but it sounds god-awful probably, and I'm guessing I would lose friends if I ever busted it out with them in the car. Eight Beat Measure, RIT's all-male a capella group, is worlds above my car singing when it comes to talent level — and the group's setlists are much more appropriate for the style as well. The group digs into somewhat recent hits with Coldplay's "Viva La Vida" and Mumford and Son's "The Cave," but also pull out oldies like Eric Clapton's "Tears in Heaven," and they do it with flair. There's even the occasional rap section.

Eight Beat Measure will perform its concert Meltdown! on Saturday, November 22, at RIT's Panara Theater. 8 p.m. $8-$10.
