Yes, it's true, tonight we are having a party at the infamous Room 710 at 710 Red River across the street from The Red Eye Fly and Stubb's.

LAist are big fans of Room 710, and only because of Asher, the owner of the club, were we able to swing a jam-packed night of rock for your SXSW-attending ass. And we're passing that luck over to you!

While it might appear that the evening will be a showcase of up-'n-coming new music (that you'll be bragging about years from now: "I saw them for free, bitch!"), it will secretly be a tag team battle royale between two Austin bands and two LA bands.

From Austin, we have the sweet sounds of Quiet Company and the metal riffs of Blackholicus. And from here in LA we've got Golden AX and LAist favorites Rocket (pictured).

After the jump, check out the kickass poster created by bloopy, and if you want to check out some great free music, please stop by the club and look for the bald man with the beard named Tony and say hi.
