Your Favorite Band’s Favorite Band.

I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for a tragic story, and when it comes to indie rock, there aren’t many stories more tragic than that of Jonathan Fire* Eater. I first learned about this incredibly exciting but ultimately doomed band while reading 2017’s Meet Me in the Bathroom. The book, written by Lizzy Goodman, gives an oral recount of the early 2000s New York City rock revival.
