Terms and Conditions:

**Please note fees include Evanston and Cook County amusement tax.** We want to make sure that all patrons know what to expect when attending events at SPACE. Please note that not all tickets guarantee seats. Seating varies show by show, so please pay attention to the description of the seating level that you select. A "Reserved Table Seat" guarantees one seat at a cabaret table. Every individual in your party needs a ticket in that section in order to sit at your table. Table seats are held until one hour after the start time of the show. Reserved Table Seats and any will-call tickets are non transferable - the name of the person ordering must match the name of the person picking up the tickets. A “GA Limited Seating” ticket guarantees access to the concert, but does not guarantee a seat. Seating is available on a limited, first-come, first-served basis. If seating is absolutely necessary to you, please purchase a Reserved Table Seat. For certain shows, we will have a "GA Seated" section, which guarantees a chair, but no table. Seats for this section are guaranteed until showtime. A “GA Dance Floor” or “Standing Room” ticket is just that. There is absolutely no seating in either of these sections. Please do not purchase a ticket in these sections if you will be unable to stand for the duration of the show. Doors for concerts open one hour before the start time of the show. SPACE reserves the right to change the start time, or to add performers to a lineup. Ticket buyers will be emailed with any major changes. No outside food or drinks are permitted. Pizzas from Union Pizzeria can be brought into the concert. SPACE has a full bar and cocktail service during shows. Flash photography is not permitted in SPACE. This is a listening room, and it is important to us that performers are able to be heard. Patrons talking during quiet shows may be asked to step outside so others can enjoy the show. SPACE is an all-ages venue, but patrons must be 21 to drink alcoholic beverages. No refunds will be given under any circumstances. By continuing with this purchase, you acknowledge that you have read and understood the terms and conditions stated above.

 I understand and accept these terms.

Additional Information

Singer and songwriter Rayland Baxter is an artist whose music is at once mystic and down to earth, focused on the ebb and flow of human relations while wrapped in simple but evocative melodies and sung in a voice that reflects the mysteries of life that are the stuff of his songs. Rayland Baxter was born in Bon Aqua, Tennessee (not far from Nashville) on September 26, 1983. Rayland grew up in a house full of music; his father is Bucky Baxter (aka William Baxter), a noted pedal steel guitarist who has worked with Bob Dylan, Steve Earle, R.E.M., and Ryan Adams. Rayland was about nine years old when his father gave him an electric guitar, but even though Rayland enjoyed music and learned to play his new instrument, his first love was sports, and the young man was more interested in spending time outside than picking. Baxter would go on to play lacrosse at Loyola University, but injuries to his knees put an end to his career as a competitor, and with sports no longer a priority, Rayland's interest in music deepened. Rayland quit school and moved to Creede, Colorado, where he wrote songs, played open-mike nights, and busked for change. Rayland next landed a job as a roadie with the band Moonshine Sessions, and a tour of Europe prompted an extended stay in Paris, but when a brief romance left Baxter with a broken heart, he took a friend up on an offer to spend some time in Israel, where he immersed himself in classic singer/songwriter albums (including artists such as Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, and Townes Van Zandt), and committed himself to the art of songwriting. By the summer of 2010 Baxter had settled in Nashville, and began playing local showcases and open-mike nights; his first EP, The Miscalculation of Song, appeared a few months later. Baxter's first album, Feathers & FishHooks, which featured extensive instrumental work from Rayland's father, was released by an independent label in 2012, and by the end of the year Baxter had signed with the artist-friendly ATO Records label, who quickly reissued Feathers & FishHooks. Baxter supported the album with touring, including road dates opening for the Civil Wars and Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, and while off the road he made his home in a ramshackle house in Nashville he shared with several friends, where he slept on a screened-in porch. In 2015 Rayland dropped his second full-length album, the ambitious Imaginary Man.
