AXE Collective + Crew Powered by SPIN at The Belmont Austin (3/17) and SPIN@Stubbs (3/18)

The first one on the list is put together by SPIN magazine. Known for their awesome line-ups, these events are not the ones to miss. The AXE Collective, held at The Bellmont on Thursday, features a carefully curated collection by John Legend, who will headline the event himself. The party will feature hip-hop sibling duo Rae Sremmurd, electrifying LA-based singer Gallant, electronic pop duo AlunaGeorge and former “Glee” star Alex Newell. Meanwhile, on Friday at Stubbs the SPIN party will feature rapper Vince Staples, DAWN, BAIO, the side project of Chris Baio from Vampire Weekend , and Bleached, plus breakfast tacos. No RSVP is needed for the AXE Collective + Crew Powered by SPIN, so get there early. However, an RSVP is required for SPIN@Stubb’s, so get on their waitlist here
