This Evanston Concert Venue is Bringing Live Performances to Your Front Yard

There’s a SPACE invasion happening in suburban Evanston, but it doesn’t involve little green men. Known for their live music performances and recording studios, SPACE has hosted thousands of local and national touring acts on their stage. The Evanston concert venue is throwing “micro concerts” from a safe distance on your front lawn.

North Shore residents can request an artist to come set up in the front or backyard to perform a 30-minute set for the whole block. The performer will bring all their own gear, set up, and be ready to play. Viewers are asked to keep to social distancing guidelines and enjoy the show from their porches. Each concert includes two ready-to-bake Detroit-style pizzas from Union Squared, drinks for 10 people, a dozen cookies from Noir d’Ebene, and some SPACE swag. This is a great way to celebrate a special occasion or just treat the community to a special musical event.

Reservations are available on a first come, first serve basis and inquiries can be sent on the SPACE website. SPACE is also hosting virtual livestream concerts nearly every night of the week, so you can always tune into their donation-based performances.

SPACE is part of 16” on Center, a Chicago-based hospitality collective by Bruce Finkelman and Craig Golden that oversees operations of over 10 restaurants and venues, including Thalia Hall in Pilsen and The Empty Bottle in Ukrainian Village.
