After a lovely evening of gallery openings on Thursday evening, you can get your groove on from 9:30pm – 1:00am in the Regency Ballroom A-B at the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee.  If you play a musical instrument, or would like to listen to some great music, join this informal gathering of musicians playing improvised/unrehearsed music.  Last year, our conference blogger, Duncan Blount, wrote of the potter’s jam:

I danced pretty hardcore at one point last night. One might probably prefer to call it flailing and flopping, but I’m pretty sure it was to the right tempo. I’m not the best dancer, but it’s NCECA! I couldn’t help it! There were so many lovely people; how could I be embarrassed? I met David Lee, who brought a horn that he had wheel thrown (Whhattt???) and he played that one note like a champ. The musicians were completely compelling, and had the crowd either tapping their feet or dancing.
