Come join the most rock-and-roll browser in the world, Opera, as we celebrate SXSW Interactive Week 2008 at one of Austin's coolest outdoor ampitheaters, Stubb's!

This "Rock Bands Rock Opera" SXSW 2008 event will feature several great rock bands from Los Angeles: Gliss, Sabrosa Purr, and Taxi Doll and Austin-natives, Lomita and Oliver Future - a band that was recently rated Best Live Band in Austin. The Norwegian label, Smalltown Supersound, will also supply DJ entertainment at the beginning and end of the evening, and Norwegian fashion by Moods of Norway will be shown on artists throughout the show.

At the show, we'll be showing off the latest versions of My Opera, Opera, Opera Mini, the Wii Internet Channel and some very special new stuff! We are excited to rock with you in Austin, TX at SXSW 2008 and look forward to seeing all of you at our open-bar, all-ages music and technology ROCK.OPERA.SXSW shindig!
