Vajra Plays To A Sold-Out Audience At The Bowery Ballroom in NYC

Share Article

Vajra is on fire. The band returned to NYC from SXSW and played to a sold-out audience at The Bowery Ballroom on Saturday, March 24 opening for Killcode. Performing music from their forthcoming debut album ‘Pleroma,’ a haunting exploration of paradox, the band mesmerized their audience with a series of dark and hypnotic songs written during Annamaria Pinna's self-imposed exile in India. Annamaria’s powerful vocals were highlighted by Luke Markham on drums, Doug Wright (The Dirty Pearls) on bass, and Will Dahl (ex-Harley’s War) on guitar. Eastern Indian themes wove together with melodic, progressive rock creating foreboding and mysterious lullabies. Their set included a multimedia performance with visuals from projectionist Neon Meow, featuring the art of Kaliptus, Wulfgang and Raven Noir.

The band is quickly generating a buzz after releasing their first single “Inside The Flame.” At SXSW, they performed two shows, and Virgin America selected Vajra’s single “Erode The Will” for their In-Flight Entertainment Series.
