The closest St. Louis has ever gotten to having an air guitar event was five years ago when a reporter-wannabe-air-guitarist who called himself Das Hermanator interviewed Björn Türoque, who humored him and said his air guitar name was "not bad."


Björn was too polite to tell him the truth, but truth (and a whole slew of other extreme emotions) will be felt in St. Louis next month as the dream of competitive air guitar is realized and two champions move on to the US Air Guitar Semifinals.
