After punishing economic damage from the pandemic, Evanston is on the road to recovery, and Out of Space/SPACE organizers are committing to contributing to the effort, encouraging traffic back to the city by bringing in artists whose audiences won’t fit into their venue. SPACE/Out of Space is part of 16″ on Center, a restaurant/music venue collective that includes Thalia Hall, Empty Bottle, Duseks, Longman and Eagle and others. The collective recently announced
The Salt Shed, Chicago’s new performance and community space, is set to open at the historic Morton Salt complex. The complex will feature an outdoor space opening this summer, and a massive, state of the art indoor venue opening in 2023.
