Secret Project Robot is an artist run art space in Brooklyn, NewYork.  Established in 2004, it has hosted some major events in the history of New York's culture of DIY and artist run spaces since the 2000's, including secret shows by Spiritualized, performances by Laurie Anderson and the Yeah Yeah Yeah's not to mention thousands of art shows, parties, installations, performance pieces, bbq's and bands.   Secret Project Robot is highly selective in putting together shows, so please describe the event, in detail, that you are seeking before submitting a proposal to a curator.

  • Shows at SPR are fluid in nature, though we don't often book events back to back in the gallery, there will often be a show in the gallery and a DJ party in the bar.

  • Please check our calendar before sending a booking inquiry to make sure the date of interest is available.*
  • Shows will only be confirmed once an agreement of our “terms” has been reached. The purpose of this agreement is 100% transparency between performers and SPR in regards to House Costs, run of show, payout & co-operation.*


  • House Costs go to pay for our Sound Engineer and Door Manager
  • CURATORIAL FEE:  In order to support the hard work of the promoters and the curators SOME shows will have a $1 to $2 per person fee added onto the door above the cost of the show in order to compensate those who often work hardest to make a show happen, but often get paid the least or not at all... this means that an $8 show might turn into a $9 or $10 show to help support these people... At Secret Project Robot our aim is to treat all artists, curators and promoters fairly, so we will always be 100% transparent when this fee is added on...
    • If the door Grosses $0-$200 the house cost is $50,
    • If The door Grosses $201-400 the house cost $100
    • If the door Grosses $400 to $800 the house cost is $150,
