The Space, a music venue in Hamden, Connecticut, has announced they are opening a new venue called ‘The Spaceland Ballroom’ and have launched a Kickstarter crowdsource fund for the project.
The Outer Space, a complimentary music venue and craft beer bar to The Space, an all-ages venue, is expanding into the adjoining warehouse building.
The Space is celebrating a ten year anniversary in 2013. The venue has had quite a journey and has grown from a small group of friends putting on house parties to a nationally recognized community music and arts venue and known as a safe, creative and inspiring haven for people of all ages.
The Outer Space, which serves the 21+ crowd, has become a local hot spot since it opened in 2011. We are so thankful to all of the bands. The Outer Space will remain a small performance space with a stage and proper sound system.
The Space is simply (or not-so-simply) adding a large event space in what will become “The Spaceland Ballroom”. Renovations will allow for the hosting of concerts, art shows, craft fairs, community-minded organization meetings, and will also house a small kitchen.
Basic construction (ie: floors, ceiling, walls, and heating system) has already begun, but we hope to raise the very needed funds to open our doors.
With this Kickstarter, The Space hopes to raise enough money to build staging, purchase a sound and a lighting system, raise the curtain, install safety equipment, and open the venue doors.
Donations will help the Connecticut music scene continue to grow, support local musicians/artists, bring jobs to the community, and will also bring regional and national acts to this great state. The Kickstarter project will conclude on December 29.
