Dogwoof has today released the first official trailer and artwork for Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace’s (“Shut Up And Play The Hits”, “Blur: No Distance Left to Run”) latest ‘rockumentary’, “Meet Me in the Bathroom”, inspired by the book by the eponymous book by Lizzy Goodman.
This painstakingly investigative film provides 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 to perfectly capture the names, faces, voices and atmosphere of a pivotal time and place in modern music history. 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.
Meet Me in the Bathroom 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.
Meet Me in the Bathroom will release in UK & Irish cinemas from 10th March 2023 and in the meantime, we’ll leave you with the trailer that promises the definitive film on the last great romantic age of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
