WH air guitar 05.20.17.2

 

Recap: We started the night with a packed house. I swear we went from 30 people in the place to over 100 in like 30 minutes. The number draw from the magic cowboy boot happened. CindAIRella, who had already won a qualifier, but still wanted to perform for Nashville, declared that she would go first with an intentional DQ. That left the other 8 to select the remaining slots. It shook out like this:
 

1.CindAIRella (KC)

2.Jimmy Peters (Nashville)

3. Mom Jeans Jeanie (Atlanta)

4. Shorty McShred (Nashville)

5. Smiley Rod (NYC)

6. Stack Attack (KC)

7. Iron Dragon (KC)

8. Farty McFly (NYC)

9. Glory Wholesome (KC)

With a crowded field nearing 10 competitors in round 2, and a raucous audience that stayed until whatever happens after Freebird, Lumb-air-jack (Will Herndon), Agnes Young (Rachel Sinclair), & Six String Sal (Saladin Thomas) took San Diego. Dozens of other damn-near competitors will watch them advance to the National Finals this August in Washington, DC.

Seattle Airheads Know How to Rock!

This is a Guest Post by Tony Tapatio

 

Our Dearest U.S. Air Guitar,

 

Well, it’s been almost two weeks since the Seattle Air Guitar Qualifier. Due to busy schedules and of course, the need to stick to Pacific Northwest tradition, we are just now getting the good word to you. And by good word, we mean the highlights of the Qualifier! So, here they are. . .

 

Tony Tapatio once again kicked off the event with an astounding introductory performance. He wowed audience members with his airbilities, from soft strummin’ to hard riffin’, with just the right amount of the signature Tapatio air guitar molestation, all performed to a wide array of music.

 

The Qualifier had twelve competitors officially signed up. No wild cards this year, but two more folks signed up last minute after the show had already started, and so made it just in time to perform in the first round. And one of those two, well, let’s just say, he made it pretty far. . . We didn’t have any broken mirrors, or people relieving themselves backstage this year. BUT (and this is even better than that) what we did have is 10 newcomers who showed up and gave it their all this year, and several, new and old, fans who showed up to support their favorites and just have a god-good-damn time.

Congrats to Brock McRock (aka Matthew McConaugheyhey) on winning the US Air Guitar ATX Regional at Full Circle Bar Austin. We will never forget the mid-routine jean short speedo wardrobe change.

 

 

What a magical night of immense airness by all. Thank you to the fearless competitors, the gut busting emcee and judges and all the crazy groupies in the crowd. Air guitar is no doubt officially back in Austin, TX. You’ve been warned, America!

 

Cheers to our awesome sponsors: Community Beer Company, 4th Tap Brewing Co-op, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, Lucy in Disguise with Diamonds.
