On this episode of the Nialler9 Podcast, Niall is joined by No Encore’s Dave Hanratty for a chat about Meet Me In The Bathroom, the recent documentary about the New York City music scene of the early 2000s.
The film by Will Lovelace and Dylan Southern is based on the oral history book of the same name by Lizzy Goodman and is concerned with the rise of New York rock and indie stalwarts like The Strokes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV On The Radio, LCD Soundsystem, The Rapture and Interpol.
From The Moldy Peaches’ early open mic night performances where they meet folk songwriter Karen O and The Strokes just as they are about to hit it big, Meet Me In The Bathroom is a fun nostalgia trip into first 10 years of indie-rock in New York through the aforementioned bands, and how it spills out into the world.
Dave and I chat about the film’s comings and goings. Join us.
Nialler9 is hosting an Indie Sleaze night on Good Friday, April 7th @ Workman’s Cellar, where you’ll hear most of this kind of music and more.
More on Indie Sleaze from our podcast last year with Louise McSharry.
