The buttons are here:
And if you want one, find Ryan or Drew at #musicon12.
Or, better yet: Come to the 4th annual Amusicology No-Host reception. All are welcome! The gathering takes place from 7-9pm on Friday, November 2 at the Sazerac Bar at the Roosevelt Hotel, just a three blocks up the road from the conference hotels.
We hope that this year’s buttons make up for the fact that we can’t pay for your drinks!
