are evening DL's common?
They're not uncommon. In the Indian Church, for example, evening Liturgies may be celebrated
a) the night before certain feasts if a morning Liturgy would prevent more people from attending
b) by a priest who serves two parishes, so that each could have the Liturgy (e.g., one on Sunday morning, the other on Sunday-evening-which-is-technically-Monday)
c) in countries where Sunday is a working day (e.g., the Middle East)
d) in consultation with the bishop if pastoral needs require it (e.g., mission parishes), etc.
