Based on Lizzy Goodman’s book and employing an incredible wealth of archive, Meet Me In The Bathroom captures the last great romantic age of rock ‘n’ roll through the lens of iconic New York musicians.
At the beginning of a new millennium, rock music in New York had grown stale. But in Brooklyn, where people who could no longer afford to live in Manhattan were moving, young musicians were forging a new, scuzzy, DIY music scene.
From humble beginnings came the bands that defined an era – from The Strokes and dance-influenced mavericks LCD Soundsystem to women trying to find their place, such as Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O and Kimya Dawson of The Moldy Peaches. Belfast’s own David Holmes also features.
A time capsule capturing a very different America (the events of 9/11 are particularly moving here), featuring key players reflecting with honesty and passion on the role they played, Meet Me In The Bathroom is thoroughly enjoyable viewing for music fans.
“A vivid time capsule of New York rock culture.” – Variety
