Subject: Jamming in Chicago

If you are interested in playing music and singing in Chicago at the
LSA meetings, let me know and I will try to find us a place to
play. Fiddles, guitars, flutes, percussion, etc. are welcome. It would
mean that you would have to carry your instrument to Chicago, but it
will be worth it. Regardless of our theoretical commitments, music is
a good way of finding out that we are like languages - in many ways
our similarities are at least as striking as our differences.

I would try to organize this for earlier in the evening on Saturday
night, so that when we finish we will still have time to hear some
Chicago blues at one of the nearby clubs.

It has been my experience that functionalists play more funky music
than formalists. So I do hope that blues-playing Minimality theorists
will come to "cut heads" (see the movie "Crossroads" if this term is
unfamiliar to you) with the grammaticalizationists.
