A Night Of Music With Keyboard Cata

Three years ago, Students Organizing the Multiple Arts (SOMA) gathered a group of musicians to play on campus bus routes. Named after the Keyboard Cat viral video, The Keyboard Catas, however, jump on the Blue and White loops with guitars and drums to some play music.

Sofia Alvarez, Psychology of the Neuroscience Junior, is the Keyboard Catas Chair of SOMA. Her job is to rally people together, organize a vote as to which songs they will play, and print out lyrics. This year, they played “Jumper” by Third Eye Blind, “Seven Nation Army” by The White Stripes, and “Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Their goal is to get people to join in and hopefully spread some cheer to people’s bus rides.

In the past, SOMA has spread the arts to students by getting musicians to play shows or setting up an Arts Crawl with the School of Visual Arts, but this is their most entertaining attempt yet.

Here’s the group last Wednesday:
