Air Guitar Nation & Video Aireoke Explode in Kansas City
Saturday night at the Alamo Drafthouse Kansas City, AIR GUITAR NATION, the 2003 documentary that chronicled the birth of US Air Guitar, celebrated its 10th Anniversary with a theatrical screening and a live air guitar experience like nothing that's ever been seen before.
After AIR GUITAR NATION, the near-capacity crowd was treated to a special message from Björn Türoque filmed last week from his private compound. Just what is the co-star of the critically acclaimed movie up to? Find out in this exclusive video:
After the movie, Aireoke (originated by Türoque) took VIDEO form on the giant movie screen while mayhem reigned throughout the theater. The air guitar faithful in KC drank the Drafthouse out of all their PBR and left the space in ruins, with spilled drinks and vast carnage as far as the eye could see. The showing of OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL next door wasn't too happy that James Franco was drowned out by Andrew W.K., but it improved the movie if you ask us.
Passions were inflamed, here was an appearance by KC's premier air band FIST STAB, and only two people were seriously hurt.
When it was all said and done, the powers that be at the Drafthouse said it was right up their alley. This will happen again.
