    They had a doc that premiered at Sundance this last year. It was very, very good. Did not know there was a book this is an instant grab for sure

    If it makes you feel better after I read MMITB I went and read Please Kill Me which is the same style of book but about the punk/new wave scene of the 70s-80s

    Everyone in Meet Me spent the entire book talking about how NY will never be the same as it was in the 2000s and it’s boring and safe now but in Please Kill Me (published in ‘96) dudes were saying NY will never be the same as it was in the 70s and it’s boring and safe now

    walkmen are one of my fav bands ever and hamilton is a big reason why (he just kills it vocally on every track of theirs)

    lisbon and heaven are closer to his solo stuff (love both those records to shred) but my favourite is by far bows + arrows.

    The song Evergreen is legit!

    thank you these r my friends and living in nyc, i always felt like the rock scene was completely dead till now

    the chill bedroom s*** is dated, i feel like there’s a new sound coming out of the les that’s a lot more hyperactive and i truly think we’re gonna start seeing ppl imitate in next few years

    Just remember ppl were saying it was all fake af back then as well. The strokes really were a bunch of larping rich kids (who made GOAT music) and white ppl in New York were just goofing around at that point

    Just find the ppl who are making art and engage them and you’ll get that NYC experience, whatever it is
