Pit Stories: The Devil And The Dirty Deed

Tuesday again already? That means we've got more hilarious Pit Stories for you culled straight from the minds of the musicians themselves!

In recent weeks we've seen a show get tanked by a pretty smile and a very interesting way of expressing anger during a battle of the bands being judged by nuns.

Today we've got two stories from Annamaria Pinna and Dave Sussman of the New York based rock / gypsy metal Band Vajra. Both got a lot more than they bargained for at shows - but one of these endings is more enjoyable than the other!

First up is Annamaria, offering a story of a very unexpected encounter while waiting for the bathroom:

This actually just happened on our To The Ends Of The Earth tour. We were in Ohio. We had just played and I was waiting for the bathroom. I didn’t have my phone on me because it was charging so I basically looked around trying to waste time. The walls became so very interesting at that point.

I must have been waiting 5 minutes when all of a sudden, a woman sitting at the booth next to me leaps up, points in my direction and says “Either she goes, or I go!” And I looked at her intrigued by the drama unfolding before my eyes. It was like a juicy soap opera taking place right before my eyes. I looked behind me to see who she must have been referring to, but there was no one else there. The thought crossed my mind; was she talking about me? At that point, she glares at me and said “She’s the devil! Look at her, she’s evil!” So, naturally, I started laughing, which of course, freaked her out even more.

Her husband then jumps up, approaches me, apologizes and says she is really drunk. The whole situation amused me, so I smiled, looked at her, and told her husband not to worry and that this is clearly her issue. As I continued to smile and look at her, she continued to unravel and freak out more. I thought to myself that this experience paralleled a few chapters in The Master and Margarita.

Not sure why she thought I was the Devil, but I take it as a compliment. Bahahahhaha!

Dave meanwhile had this story to share about really "performing" well on stage: More...

Vajra Releases "The Mirror" Video

New York based rock / gypsy metal Band Vajra has released an official music video for "The Mirror," the first single off the group's upcoming "Irkalla" EP; the first of a planned trilogy of EPs with visual components attached to each song. All of these elements will tie together as a movie.

Vajra's Annamaria Pinna commetns: "Like we did with our previous video for our single '3.14,' we also did this video on a $0 budget, so we had to be creative in our scene choices, shots, location, edits, costumes and storylines.

"We collaborated with a dear friend of ours, multimedia artist, Idit Nissenbaum, who shared our vision of presenting a visual exploration of the levels of consciousness. The mirror is a vehicle from which we can see where we are, and perhaps work on things that may be holding us back from going deeper. We are super excited to share this video with you. More...
