LA: The Entertainment Capital of Air Guitar
--This is a guest post by the LA Qualifier organizer and two-time LA Regional champ, Six String General.--
With all of the movie, TV and music that gets produced here, they say Los Angeles is the entertainment capital of the world. I would say this holds true for air guitar as well. Los Angeles could most certainly be considered the entertainment capital of air guitar. Sure, some cities might have better pure air guitarists from top to bottom, but few if any will put on a better show.
To start with, just take a look at our competitors. They range from a sixty-three year old woman who credits air guitar with saving her life (Smart Old Broad) to a teenage second generation air guitarist (Air-O-Dynamic). Defending champion Soulstice, college friend and protégé of world champion Mean Melin, has been working hard in the gym and at his computer getting ready to defend his title. Don’t sleep on former champ Shred Boy RD either. LA is so much fun we have the infamous Tiger Claw coming in from San Francisco and feisty veteran Aurora Nasty returning from all the way up in Portland.
Even our judges put on a hell of a show. Former US champ Rockness Monster will be returning to the judges table once again (possibly joined by wife/former champ Bride of Rockness?). “Bald Bryan”, aka Bryan Bishop, will be weighing in this year. He is the longtime on-air sidekick of Adam Carolla, a recently minted New York Times Bestselling author of the book “Shrinkage: Manhood, Marriage, and the Tumor That Tried to Kill Me”, and survivor of a freaking brain tumor! Rounding out our judges is former WWE wrestler Melina, a 2X Divas and 3X Womens champion, beautiful and badass.
And if you’re unhappy with the judges scoring, we’re introducing a new wrinkle this year: the audience themselves will be selecting one person to move on to round 2! So make sure to get out and support your favorite air guitarist!
We’re going to fill the night out with a fun halftime, surprises in Round 2, and an after-party into the wee hours with The Lonely Drunks Club Band. Because partying is the most important, you guys. All of this is going down June 6th at the world famous Viper Room. They’re even busting out The Pussycat Dolls’ glowing runway for us for maximal crowd rocking effect!
Tickets to watch can be purchased here!
So I have just one question left for all of you:
