AUSTIN, TX, USA – Just a short two block walk from the Austin Convention Centre sits the Nokia Lab. With air-lock doors, the lab has every element of being a top-secret enclave of innovation. Inside you’ll find a host of Nokia R&D treats and demos, but given that this is SXSW, the Lab wouldn’t really be complete without some serious entertainment.

Step forward The Hood Internet. Alongside mashing up Hip Hop and Indie Rock mixes, this production duo also specialise in mashing up classic album covers with pictures of tacos. I’m not sure if they’ll be showing off any of their creations when they rock the Nokia Lab tomorrow (Sunday) night, but we can be certain that ABX and Stv Slv (Steve Sleeve) will be rocking the tent from 11.30pm until the early hours. 

All through this week a host of artists will be entertaining folks in the Nokia Lab. SXSW attendees can check out the ins and outs of the Nokia Lab, getting hands on with the latest phones and some pretty cool innovations from Nokia whilst their ears get regaled by a mix of musical treats.

Sunday evening will see the Nokia and party kicking at the Nokia Lab and before The Hood Internet take to the stage Deniro Farrar and Frankie Rose will be doing their things.

Monday evening looks like another rocking night with top rapper XV taking to the stage before top DJ Gigamesh turns on some tunes. Tuesday continues in much the same vein with four more acts rocking out from mid afternoon until 8pm. 

If you’re at SXSW, be sure to stop by. You can see the full entertainment line up at our Nokia at SXSW 2012 page. If you’re plugging in from afar, then stay tuned into Conversations where we’ll be bringing you thoughts and opinions from some of the more interesting talks taking place here in Austin.
