SPACELAND CLOSING DOWN, THE SATELLITE’S MOVING IN
“It just reached a point where it was time for us to move on,” says Mitchell Frank who started Spaceland as a weekly club night in 1993. “We’ve had some incredible musical moments here, people met, fell in love, started life-long friendships, but it’s just time for a change.”
The Satellite has agreed to honor all Spaceland’s booking commitments through March 2011. They say they won’t be changing much, but will be bringing in ex-Spaceland booker Jennifer Tefft to do in-house booking. Frank, along with business partner Jeff Ellermeyer, plan on opening a new space oriented towards dance nights and djs on the east side early next year.
