This edition of Vol. 1′s “Greatest 3-Minute Stories” is a little more devilish than usual. Its main focus? Metal! Think Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, devil horns, long hair, 666, you get the idea. This Tuesday in the back room of Public Assembly join the Vol. 1 crew as they host a collection of readers telling stories inspired by the satanic sounds that come from their stereo. Readers include Mike Edison (The Mike and Judy Show), Maura Johnston (Village Voice), Molly Templeton (Word, The How-To Issue) and many more.
