Based on Lizzy Goodman’s book and employing an incredible wealth of archive, Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace’s documentary perfectly encapsulates early-2000s New York indie rock.

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 of colour trying to find their place, such as Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O and Kimya Dawson of The Moldy Peaches.

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 essential viewing for music fans.
