SOPA shows up online at www.sopa.dk. Eight artists are on the roster - and have yet to release anything on SOPA.
The very first SOPA releases: Nils Gröndahl (of Under Byen) and Marzipan Marzipan. Danish reviewers and national radio welcome them.
American writer Kurt Vonnegut dies. He inspired the name of SOPA.
The very first SOPA NIGHT is held at the venue Ausland in Berlin. Performers: 9 (with Marzipan Marzipan), Agata & Me, Capt. Daydream (DJ), KURvE and Animallovers.
SOPA is mentioned as one of the new "labels to watch" in one of the opening speeches at the Spot Festival. Oddly enough, despite several applications over the years, the bookers at the festival still have not found it necessary to put SOPA artists on the programme.
The second SOPA NIGHT goes down at Rumstativ during the Aarhus Festival Week. Performing: A.K. Hansn & The Empty House, Nils Gröndahl & Oliver Hoiness, Agata & Me, Capt. Daydream (DJ) and Plastic Society.
Two more SOPA cds are released: "Eponymous" by 9 and the massive two-disc "SOPA DELICIOSA" compilation (which gathers great momentum and attention from music writers and listeners).
A release party is held at Huset in Copenhagen. Performers: Girls Love Rallie, Capt. Daydream (DJ) and Konrad Korabiewski.
SOPA welcomes Agata & Me onboard the artist roster.
Marzipan Marzipan's "The Love Song" from "SOPA DELICIOSA" enters the Elektriske Barometer indie chart on Danish national radio DR and stays there for three weeks.
SOPA releases Agata & Me's "Overnite EP" which is very well received.
SOPA NIGHTs number three and four are held in Næstved (9, Girls Love Rallie, Capt. Daydream (DJ) and Polsi) and Copenhagen (9, Delay Lama, Capt. Daydream (DJ) and Spejderrobot).
Yet two more releases come out: Girls Love Rallie and Delay Lama. Once again the music writers like what they hear.
Geiger reviews a bunch of cds and says of SOPA: "In the course of relatively short time it has developed into a significant player on the Danish indie- and experimental scene."

A "5 year birthday bash" is held at HeadQuarters in Aarhus. Performers: Marzipan Marzipan, Agata & Me, A.K. Hansn, Bjarke Svendsen (DJ) and others.
The shape of things to come...
In the fall of 2011 the second album of Girls Love Rallie called "Son Of Rock'n'Roll" is released on cd.
Sister Chain & Brother John also release their second album (their first on SOPA). It's called "The Androgyne Show" and is a 100% analogue production. Recorded on tape and transfered directly to LP without any digital processes.
