The Space
1206 E. Colonial Drive, 407-205-7572, thespaceistheplace.com

If you’ve never been to the Space, it can sound a little like a hipster clubhouse, but the informal venue run on donations has evolved to become an artsier alternative to Uncle Lou’s Entertainment Hall. Whatever your weird idea is, it’s accepted, as the stairs leading up to the curious venue pronounce: “Welcome. You are here. It is now.” Unique arts events crop up, like The Caress of Progress and I Believe in You, and it’s the preferred venue for edgy events by Body//Talk, Is It Over Yet?, Literocalypse and Polylust Burlesque. Add to that stacked lineups of notable local bands like Golden Pelicans, Me Chinese, Sales and Case Work, plus touring acts like Centuries, Emperor X and Bombadil, and you quickly learn the Space is equal parts community and courage.
