It’s the end of the blogosphere as we know it. And I feel fine.
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.
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!
Barely more than a month before we are all together.
As Ryan Raul Bañagale always tells his students, live theater–especially the genre of the musical–relies on a certain suspension of disbelief. He’s trying to hold the same for the forthcoming Hollywood adaptation of Les Misérables.
Drew and Ryan emerge from the ashes, no worse for the wear.
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.
