Last weekend, after 16 years as an Old Town institution, Scottsdale's Axis-Radius was the site of one last blowout before closing down for good. (It's set to reopen next year as a new music venue and craft beer hangout.)
We were there for Last Call. Here's 20 photos from the last night anybody will spend at Axis-Radius until next year.
More than a thousand rowdy revelers and party monsters jammed into Axis-Radius in Scottsdale on Saturday, June 29, for one final fiesta before the iconic Old Town nightclub closed its doors after 16 years. Both parts of the double-sided dance haven were packed with action as the last bash unfolded: Axis served up Top 40 and plenty of bottle-popping fun while Radius featured EDM tracks and club bangers from a number of DJs who spun at the joint over the past decade and a half (including DJ Phantom, LTJ, and Steve LeVine). They even kept the music going after last call, offering a few extra moments of high-energy dancing fun before pulling the plug on one of Scottsdale's most influential spots.
