For many months now, Lager Rhythms have been trying to get into a studio to lay down our “new” songs that have yet to be recorded for posterity. We’ve been hampered by schedules, sick singers, schedules, jobs, scarce studios, and schedules. But we recently realized what we need to overcome these obstacles: one single night, a beautiful venue, and most importantly – you!
We are thrilled to be bringing our 24-year tradition of non-traditional a cappella to MATCH. MATCHBOX 4 has 323 seats, and our sound engineer and videographer only need two of them. You know what to do…!
Friday, May 11, 2018
Doors open at 7:30pm
Concert & Live Recording Session at 8:00pm in Matchbox 4
Tickets are $20 adult, $10 for 12 and under, with a $2 fee per ticket. Snacks and beverages are available. There are also several fine restaurants within a block or two. The concert will be about 2 hours in total.
Lager Rhythms, an eight-member Houston-based a cappella group of varying heights, performs an eclectic mix of classic and modern songs, from folk to rock to the weird and wonderful world of nerd-pop. (It’s a term we just made up, but if you’re reading this, you probably know what we mean.)
The group was founded in 1994 by five friends who knew each other partly from math and computer classes but mostly from tending bar at Valhalla, the graduate student pub at Rice University. Over the past twenty years we have grown in popularity as well as humility, while our audience has become more attractive and intelligent. We are also not above a little brown-nosing. Lager Rhythms has performed at a wide range of venues from street corners to the Wortham Theater Center. We do clean up pretty nice when necessary. Luckily, Houston decency laws mean it is usually necessary. Lager Rhythms has released four CDs, all of which are professionally shrink-wrapped.
If a CD purchase isn’t exciting enough for you, feel free to hire us and we’ll be happy to provide a more personal experience.
