OUT OF SPACE

SPACE celebrated 10 years of live music with its inaugural “Out of Space” series, a full summer of outdoor concerts welcomed by 93XRT in some of the most beloved locations in the City of Evanston. The concerts took place from June 21–Aug. 26 at Canal Shores, an 18-hole golf course first established in Evanston in 1919; Temperance Beer Co., SPACE’s neighbor one mile west on Dempster since 2013; and the Big Evanston Block Party, at the intersection of Chicago and Dempster—just north of the venue and one block east of the Dempster Purple Line stop. 

We’re excited to share more Out of Space news in the coming days, weeks and months, so stay tuned here and on our social media for more information!

TEMPERANCE BEER COMPANY

Since opening in 2013, Temperance Beer Company has been consistently producing unique, meticulously crafted brews in its Evanston warehouse. It's here that Temperance invites visitors to sample mainstay and seasonal beers while they dig into food truck cuisine among beer hall-style tables designed for socializing, or outside under festive string lights. In Summer 2017, SPACE and Temperance hosted an inaugural event titled “Live On the Lot” featuring food trucks, beer and a performance by New Orleans’ Rebirth Brass Band. Summer 2018 saw a larger evolution of last year’s event with 6 dates across two weekends in June and July. Artists included Shovels & Rope, The New Pornographers, Rebirth Brass Band, The Lone Bellow, Dinosaur Jr. and Slick Rick.

CANAL SHORES GOLF COURSE

Canal Shores is an 18-hole golf course winding through Evanston and Wilmette along both sides of the North Shore Channel—from Green Bay Road to the Baha’i Temple near Wilmette. 

The course, first established in 1919, is managed by the Evanston Wilmette Golf Course Association, a volunteer organization composed of golfers and neighbors who want to preserve and improve this unique and special green space in our community.

Out of SPACE took place on the lush greens of the course’s first hole. The American Legion Hall (Evanston Post 42), located above the Canal Shores Pro Shop, hosted unique aftershows and a full bar for patrons looking to continue the evening after the outdoor performances have ended. Artists included Mavis Staples & Indigo Girls.
