Published Nov 20, 2015Post-hardcore veterans Vanna have been smacked with a lawsuit from a fan who alleges a guitar toss during a 2013 gig left him with a broken nose and a puncture wound from a guitar string, among other injuries.
As TMZ reports, Eric Quiros is suing the band and Los Angeles music venue Whisky a Go Go for unspecified damages following a 2013 incident where a guitar was allegedly thrown in the air without warning. Apparently, the instrument bashed the showgoer in the face and broke his nose in five places.
In addition to the cartilage cracking injury, Quiros says he also suffered cuts on his face, while a loose guitar string apparently punctured his nose. Part of the string is said to have lodged itself into his nose during the mishap. The string was later removed, while the plaintiff also had to endure surgery to fix his nose.
The Boston band have yet to comment on the matter publicly.
Vanna's most recent release is the 2015 covers EP ALT, though the act have been tweeting about the progress of their full-length follow-up to 2014's Void.
