Undaunted by constructive criticism? Want a panel of experts to review your website, live in front of an audience? If you're headed to SXSW, there’s a panel 100% dedicated to live critiques of band websites. Bandzoogle founder Chris Vinson will moderate the panel Website Demolition Derby” along with Bob Moczydlowsky (Topspin) and Ethan Kaplan (Live Nation Labs).

Diplomacy will be put aside, so this one won't be for the faint-hearted. Reviews will be brutally honest as panelists assess each site, going over the site’s design, organization, content and functionality. No word yet on whether they’ll let the panelists drink beer while they do the reviews, but we’ll keep you posted Bob.

The hope is that by the end of the session, after the dust has settled and people pick up the pieces of their broken egos, that all in attendance will learn some best practices in building and maintaining a musician website.

Panel details:

Thursday, March 15
Austin Convention Center
Room 10C
