Farewell amusicology, we hardly knew thee.

It’s the end of the blogosphere as we know it. And I feel fine.

Amusicology Buttons and Funeral!


Well, the AMS Annual Meeting is just around the corner, which means that Amusicology is having one last gasp — its own funeral! Come bury the hatchet with Drew and Ryan at 9pm on Thursday, November 7. It must be destiny that one of the highest yelp-ranked bars in the vicinity of the conference hotel is a martini joint – Olive or Twist.

Help us say good bye to our dear old blog and all its revelry, and let’s hope that the get-together is more logical and gives you more of a sense of closure than the last episode of Lost.

Amusicology AMS Buttons and No-Host Reception

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!

Marvin Hamlisch (1944-2012): Harmony and Ham

Ryan decided to take a break from Facebook this month, which means he didn’t find out about the sudden passing of composer Marvin Hamlisch in the typical manner. Rather than encounter a series of status updates and links to YouTube videos or obituaries, he happened upon the news while browsing headlines this morning. They inspired this post.
