On… Meet Me In The Bathroom

One of the best and yet worst things about growing up is figuring out what you’re good at (writing, keeping small people alive, staring into space while thinking about writing and keeping small people alive) – and what you’re not (singing, staying out past 11pm, hangovers from staying out past 11pm).

I LOVE this book. I wish I was living in NYC in 2002 with nothing but a wild urge to party and a trust fund. If you do, too, read Meet Me In The Bathroom:


Here’s the blurb:

“Meet Me in the Bathroom charts the transformation of the New York music scene in the first decade of the 2000s, the bands behind it—including The Strokes, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, LCD Soundsystem, Interpol, and Vampire Weekend—and the cultural forces that shaped it, from the Internet to a booming real estate market that forced artists out of the Lower East Side to Williamsburg. Drawing on 200 original interviews with James Murphy, Julian Casablancas, Karen O, Ezra Koenig, and many others musicians, artists, journalists, bloggers, photographers, managers, music executives, groupies, models, movie stars, and DJs who lived through this explosive time, journalist Lizzy Goodman offers a fascinating portrait of a time and a place that gave birth to a new era in modern rock-and-roll.”
