The free103point9 Project Space and Gallery was located at 97 S. 6th St. in Brooklyn from 1997-2006. On May 9, 2001, the space was beyond max capacity for performances by !!!, Black Dice, Avey Tare + Panda Bear + Geologist (later, @anmlcollective), and Animals. Animal Collective released a record with recordings from this show at free103point9, with proceeds going to two environmental justice groups.
The free103point9 Project Space was featured in Jon Fine contribution to Where the Wild Gigs Were: A Trip Through America's Legendary Underground Music Venues (ed. Tim Hinely, 2021). Fine writes, "But god, I loved it. I loved it even though, when you played there, you had to load your gear up two full flights of stairs. Ungentrified, narrow stairs, which distressingly gave a bit when you stepped on them, and variously squeaked, squealed, creaked and howled as you and your bandmates hauled your amps and speaker cabinets up to the third floor."
While we don't have visual documentation from that show on May 9, these images show the space across a few years of its life on S. 6th St.
