We consider it a great privilege to be welcomed into this community to present concerts at Temperance Beer Co. We work all year to ensure that the events are planned with care and concern for both the guests attending and the neighbors in the area surrounding the brewery. Please ensure that we are able to continue presenting concerts like this in the future and be as respectful as possible as you enter and exit these events.
How do I buy tickets? You may purchase tickets online via Eventbrite, SPACE’s third-party ticketing provider or at evanstonspace.com. No-fee tickets can be purchased in-person at the SPACE box office. Our box office is open any evening we have a show from 5-9pm.
Please note: Advance tickets will not be for sale at Temperance Beer Co. If the event is not sold out, tickets will be available for purchase at the gate. Half-priced children’s tickets will be available at the gate as well (even if the event is sold out).
Where is the concert? The event will take place in the parking lot at Temperance Beer Co. (2000 Dempster Street in Evanston; just west of Dempster & Dodge intersection). Please note: SPACE is presenting the event, but the concert is NOT located at the venue.
