This is the story of the rebirth of Rock and Roll in New York City (2001–2011) and it’s a fascinating read detailing the resurrection of the New York rock scene in the new millennium. The book was written by music journalist Lizzy Goodman and it was published in the spring of 2017. It’s a must read for any music fan, but if you don’t have time, the documentary film debuts on Showtime this November after an October 30th premier at Webster Hall in NYC. This film is an immersive archival journey through the 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, Meet Me in the Bathroom, tells the story of the last great romantic age of Rock’n’Roll through the prism of a handful of era defining bands; THE STROKES, LCD SOUNDSYSTEM, YEAH YEAH YEAH’s, INTERPOL.” – utopiadistribution.com
