RSVP now for SPIN House and SPIN at Stubbs while there's still space available! (RSVP not required for Badges and Wristbands to attend SPIN's nighttime showcases at Easy Tiger.)

UPDATE: SPIN at Stubbs RSVP is now closed. SPIN House is still open!

SPIN House

The SPIN House will be a new addition to Austin’s spring music ritual, showcasing emerging talent between 12 p.m. – 5 p.m. at Easy Tiger (709 E 6th St.). Located on the city’s main thoroughfare, the SPIN House promises to become a go-to destination for music fans looking to discover some of the hottest acts on the ground in Austin. Thursday will see performances by the Thermals, Fletcher C Johnson, and Majical Cloudz; on Saturday, Bleached, Savages, and Cloud Nothings will take to the stage, in addition to a DJ set by Jonathan Toubin.

SPIN at Stubbs (RSVP now closed)

SPIN at Stubb’s: SPIN will return to the legendary Stubb’s BBQ (801 Red River St.) for the 11th consecutive year featuring a lineup that buzzes with a diverse array of today’s most original young artists. Hip-hop’s lyrical virtuoso Kendrick Lamar will headline, and be joined on the main stage by R&B innovator Solange, Scottish synth-pop romantics CHVRCHES, melancholy psych-soul trio Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and New York indie upstarts Parquet Courts. SPIN has also arranged for a special guest appearance by rapper Trinidad Jame$ of “All Gold Everything” fame. Trailblazing electronic act Machinedrum will play a special set from the North stage, and head-spinning DJs Jackmaster and Oneman will hit the decks on Smirnoff’s Master of the Mix Indoor stage.
