If you are still on the fence about whether to attend the American Libraries Association (ALA) Annual Meeting in Las Vegas this summer, this bit of news might help you make your decision. There will be a special performance by the Oxford Commas, a band composed of librarians and university press editors who are dedicated to raising the grammatical standard in popular music. The set list will include such favorites as: Whom Do You Love?, You Haven’t Seen Anything Yet, and Two Out of Three Is Not Bad.

Conference information and registration can be found here.

I know what you are thinking. A bunch of librarians in Las Vegas? Pretty wild and crazy, but don’t worry – with guest speakers like B.J. Novak and Jane Fonda, they should tone it down below the “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” level.
