Here’s one song we can’t get out of our heads lately.
“Do the Right Thing” by Ages & Ages has one of the most satisfying builds of all time, beginning with simple acoustic guitar, percussion, and solo vocals and culminating in a glorious layer cake of tambourines, strings, and harmonies.
If you’ve been hanging out at SPACE lately, you’ve probably heard us piping “Do The Right Thing” through the speakers before and after shows, bobbing our heads to the beat as we do our work. With the simple and super catchy chorus, we dare you not to sing along by the end of your first listen.
Ages & Ages takes the stage at SPACE on April 8th, and we can’t wait to see them do this one live!
SPACE (finally) Rings in the New Year with Alejandro Escovedo & The Sensitive Boys
Last Dec 28th, we got a call that any promoter would dread. Our New Years Eve show with Alejandro Escovedo was cancelled as Alejandro ended up in the hospital, unable to travel to Chicago. With 3 days until New Years, and a few hundred people planning their festivities around our show, we got on the phone and started calling every musician, agent, and manager would could think of. Our dear friends The Flat Five and Nicholas Tremulis Orchestra stepped up to the plate and saved the day. Our amazing staff was able to reach all of the ticket buyers and let them know about the changes, and despite a few days of panic, we were able to pull off an excellent party.
Fast forward a year, and needless to say we couldn’t be more excited to finally welcome Alejandro Escovedo & The Sensitive Boys to SPACE this Dec 31st! Those rockstars who saved our butt last year will be there to help us celebrate as well, with The Flat Five playing an early show at 6pm and Nicholas Tremulis kicking things off at 10pm opening for the late show. We promise great music and lots of bubbly and good cheer.
If you’re looking to enjoy a delicious meal before or after one of the shows, send over a reservation request to Union Pizzeria, our sister restaurant.
