I won’t bore you with too much content today but I’ll give you the highlights for the week. This week we are going to M for Montreal to attend some really cool panels, we are seeing some awesome shows like DJ CHAMPION & THE G-STRINGS, FUCKED UP, ORANGE ORANGE and many more! We will also be producing a short video clip showcasing the best footage of the 4 day music festival and we will be asking many bands and fans what they think of Social media and Direct-To-Fan marketing and web solutions 🙂

Video Of The Week
ORANGE ORANGE LIVE SINGING “ET JE PLEURE”
At first, when I first saw them perform at the Excentris during the M for Montreal Media conference, I was like O.K they look sort of like candy ravers, they like the color orange and they sing through old school cord phones – silly or superb? Well after hearing the full song, I must say SUPERB. This duo produces some neat beat boxing, re-mixes and pretty cool Pop/Electro/Melodramatic tunes. We are hopefully going to get the chance to interview them at the M!
