I’ve long loved “Meet Me in the Bathroom,” the fascinating, detailed oral history of the NYC music scene in the early-to-mid 2000s. So naturally, I went to the accompanying art exhibit at @theholenyc. It was so engrossing you really didn’t need the free drinks, but I’d be lying if I said they didn’t add to the atmosphere. At first I grimaced at the crowds at the opening, but then it occurred to me that that may have been a desired effect. After all, a lot of the rock shows described in the book took place in crowded venues, with the wait for drinks inching near half-an-hour. I hadn’t been to an art opening in a while, but this has me wanting more, as well as nostalgic for the days when this city had a decent music scene. #art #nyc #meetmeinthebathroom
