[Teaser] “Meet Me in the Bathroom”: when The Moldy Peaches meets The Strokes

After the trailer released in early October, the documentary retracing the history of the New York indie scene of the 2000s is still revealed in a new teaser. On the menu, the meeting between Adam Green of the Moldy Peaches and Julian Casablancas, of the Strokes.

New images for the documentary Meet Me in the Bathroom were published a few days ago: after the trailer which promised an immersion in the 2000s to witness the birth of indie rock and groups that have become essential, including The Strokes, LCD Soundsystem, The Moldy Peaches and Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Utopia, the film’s distribution company, released an excerpt in which Adam Green recalls his first meeting with Julian Casablancas.

Adapted from a book of the same name written by Lizzy Goodman, author and journalist who notably followed the beginnings of the Strokes, the documentary directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace (already at the helm of a documentary on James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem: Shut Up and Play the Hits) is defined as:

“An immersive journey through the New York music scene of the early 2000s. A new generation kicked off a musical renaissance for New York City that reverberated around the world.”

Family meeting

At the same time a another excerptalso released in recent days, shows on a background of Last Nite of the Strokes the phenomenal rise of the group. It is commented on by Kimya Dawson, second half of the Moldy Peaches, who is then in the front row.

This document compiling archive images, concerts and interviews with the great names of New York indie rock continues to arouse excitement and impatience by distilling these short extracts and by organizing, for the occasion, the reformation of some of these groups. Adam Green and Kimya Dawson recreated their Moldy Peaches duo at the Fonda Theater in Los Angeles during the film’s premiere on October 27.

The documentary will be broadcast on Showtime from November 25 and a reissue of Lizzy Goodman’s book has been announced for 2023 by the publishing house Rue Fromentin.
