U.S. Air Guitar Championships

When: Thu., April 15, 9 p.m. 2010

At the U.S. Air Guitar Championships, a touring competition, each “guitarist” performs to one minute of a song of his or her choosing. Judged by 2008 world champ Hot Lixx Hulahan and local DJ duo Team Bayside High, the Chicago stop will yield one regional winner, who’ll be flown to New York in early August for the nationals; the U.S. champ goes to the world championships in Oulu, Finland. The entry fee is $20, but the Chicago date was “nearly full” at press time; however, you may still squeak in if you can plead your case with “evidence of airness” (past air guitar results, videos, photos, etc) to letmein@usairguitar.com pleading your case. Kiss tribute band Slutter will also perform.
