Many people don’t realize that Bandzoogle was actually founded in Montreal. Although our staff is located throughout North America and parts of Europe, founder Chris Vinson still lives in the Montreal area, and CEO David Dufresne lives right in the heart of the Plateau Montréal. So we’re thrilled to be involved this year with one of the largest festivals in the city, Pop Montreal.
Pop Montreal is taking place September 25-29, and Bandzoogle is participating in the Symposium for the first time this year. We’ll be offering free website reviews as well as hosting a Website Demolition Derby. Plus, we’re organizing a Montreal members meetup event this week, here are all the details:
Website Demolition Derby
The Website Demolition Derby takes place at Pop Quarters (3450 St. Urbain) on Thursday, September 26 at 12:15pm. Equal parts panel discussion and live critique of musicians’ websites, participants discuss how musicians can use websites, social and other digital media most effectively, while providing live critical assessments of attendee submitted websites.
Our CEO David Dufresne will host the panel which includes panelists Stacey Wilhelm (SXSW), Greg Pymm (Pymm.com), and Greg Ipp (Unfamiliar Records/StageBloc).
