(11.8) It’s aughts nostalgia time. “Meet Me in the Bathroom” — an immersive journey through the New York music scene of the early 2000s — will play for one night only this Tuesday at the Columbus Theatre. Archival footage, with new audio commentary, features the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, LCD Soundsystem, Moldy Peaches, TV on the Radio, and of course, the Strokes. And some surprises. From the NYT :
There are revealing glimpses into the early work of artists who would morph into entities that were slicker and ostensibly cooler. For instance, Paul Banks, later to front the acclaimed Joy Division sound-alike Interpol, is first seen here bearing an acoustic guitar and a boyish earnestness.
The reviewer singles out the contributions of James Murphy who is always charming and self-effacing when sharing stories of the early days. His reminiscences of Steve Albini in “Sonic Highways” were nothing short of adorable.
