The Onion and AV Club are hosting a killer SXSW Interactive party next Monday (3/16) at Red 7 which is a couple days before the official kickoff of the festival's music portion. The party will host sets from scrappy indie rocker Courtney Barnett (whose proper debut comes out only a week later), Real Estate, Toronto rippers METZ (who also have a new album on the way), similarly shredding Cymbals Eat Guitars, former Walkmen frontman Hamilton Leithauser, pop composer East India Youth, experimental soundscapist Son Lux, Hippo Campus, The Inventors and Elijah Wood and Zach Cowie's DJ outfit Wooden Wisdom.

No badge needed for this free 21+ show, just be sure to RSVP and keep in mind that admission is first-come, first-served. The show runs from 4 PM until midnight with free appetizers and refreshments from 4:30 - 6:30 PM courtesy TGI Fridays.
