MEET ME IN THE BATHROOM is an immersive journey through the New York music scene of the early 2000s, featuring never-before-seen footage of iconic artists including Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Strokes, Interpol and LCD Soundsystem. Set against the backdrop of 9/11, the film tells the story of how a new generation kick started a musical rebirth for New York City that reverberated around the world.

Inspired by the book by Lizzy Goodman, the film is constructed entirely from audio interviews and raw, contemporaneous archive; including the personal archives of the featured artists and their contemporaries, found footage, DV tapes unearthed from the shelves and storage units of New York music fans, cultural artefacts of a time and place on the cusp of seismic change.

The award-winning filmmakers behind “Shut Up And Play The Hits” and “Blur: No Distance Left to Run” - Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace – painstakingly investigated every possible archive source, bringing together a treasure trove of interviews, live performances and home recordings to perfectly capture the names, faces, voices and atmosphere of a pivotal time and place in modern music history.
