Spaceland is an alternative rock/indie rock nightclub in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. Formerly a gay disco called Dreams, it recently celebrated its tenth anniversary as a rock venue.
The list of acts who have played Spaceland is quite long, ranging from veteran performers from the 1960s and 1970s like Arthur Lee and The Dictators to current major acts such as Supergrass, Jet, The Shore and The White Stripes. It was very important in establishing the career of Beck and the Silver Lake scene which followed in his wake.
Gentrification has brought a host of problems with the neighbors, many of whom now are upscale professionals. Ironically, the club's presence helped make the neighborhood more attractive in the first place according to many.
