October 23, 2009 at 10:30 am 7 comments

Drew and Ryan are happy to announce that they will be holding the first ever Amusicology No-Host Reception at the Ritz-Carlton from 8pm-10pm on Thursday, November 12, as a kick-off to the 75th American Musicological Society annual meeting in Philadelphia. Bloggers, aspiring bloggers, readers, aspiring readers, and anyone else who wants to bathe in the musicological glow should stop by.

Google Map directions from the conference hotel:

ps. Lest you think that Drew & Ryan have suddenly come into some bailout money, no-host means that you pay for your own drinks. But we are looking in to having some souvenirs…

UPDATE: Ryan & Drew have ordered a limited number of fabulous amusicology buttons! The first 30 or so guests will get their very own piece of the blogosphere. Don’t be late.

Entry filed under: conferences, Drew Massey, job wiki, live blogging, musicologists, musicology, professional development.

On the self-referential style in the music of They Might Be Giants Guy Livingston Symposium at Tufts TOMORROW!

    I’m assuming this will clear when we get there, but where in the hotel will you guys be? Is there only one bar?

    Can’t wait!

    Part of the fun is trying to find where we’ll be hiding in the hotel! Just kidding.
    There is only one bar: 10 Arts Lounge. That’s where we’ll be. See you soon!
