An immersive journey through the New York music scene of the early 2000s. A new generation kick-started a musical rebirth for New York City that reverberated around the world.
Inspired by Lizzy Goodman’s bestselling book, MEET ME IN THE BATHROOM is an immersive archival journey through the explosive New York music scene of the early 2000s. Set against the backdrop of 9/11 and a world unaware of the seismic political, technological and cultural shifts about to occur, this acclaimed documentary tells the story of the last great romantic age of rock ‘n’ roll through the prism of a handful of era defining bands, including The Strokes, LCD Soundsystem, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Interpol, TV on the Radio, and The Moldy Peaches.
Directors Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace (SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS) present an exploration of myth and music, time and place that tells the story of how a new generation kickstarted a musical rebirth for New York City that reverberated around the world. Combining never before seen footage, intimate audio interviews and a visceral sense of time and place, MEET ME IN THE BATHROOM is a raw, confessional and authentic evocation of the pre-social media, pre-gentrification world of New York, as it examines the lives of key figures from each band, the transformation of the city, and the cultural forces that shaped it.
