SPACE celebrated 10 years of live music in 2018 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; and Temperance Beer Co., SPACE’s neighbor one mile west on Dempster since 2013. Summer 2018 culminated with the Big Evanston Block Party at the intersection of Chicago and Dempster. The two-day event featured food from local businesses, beer from Half Acre, and live performances from returning SPACE favorites and nationally touring bands.

SPACE is a live music hall and recording studio in Evanston, Ill., established in 2008.

Over the past decade, SPACE has welcomed thousands of local and national touring acts to our stage, including The Lumineers, Alabama Shakes, Graham Parker, Nick Lowe, David Lindley, The Weepies, Dr. John, Lucinda Williams and many more. The recording studio has served as a creative space for bands like The Strumbellas and The Lone Bellow to record, and offers musicians passing through a unique opportunity to rehearse and collaborate pre-show.

SPACE hosts both seated and standing-room-only shows across a variety of genres—from folk to rock to jazz and beyond. Candle-lit cabaret tables, along with general admission seats, comfortably hold an audience of 240, while standing room only shows can accommodate 330. No matter the show setup, SPACE prides itself on providing an intimate setting for fans of all ages to get up-close-and-personal with their favorite acts.

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. In honor of the venue’s 10th anniversary, summer 2018 saw a larger evolution of 2017’s event in honor of the venue’s 10th anniversary with 6 dates across two weekends in June and July. Performing 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 2018 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 outdoor performances from Mavis Staples & Indigo Girls.
