Tonight marks the first step for a potential World Air Guitar champions long road to glory in Finland. Founded in 2003, the U.S. Air Guitar Championships was created by Kriston Rucker and Cedric Devitt to offer a means for America to come up with an official candi-date for the world championships. When we found out America had never sent an official entry, we had to do something, says Devitt. It was a matter of national pride: Americans should dominate the air. The winner of the regional competition will be sent to Chicago for the national finals in July; if victory is had there, he or she will be sent to represent our country in Finland.
The airness happens tonight at the Larimer Lounge, 2721 Larimer Street, at 8 p.m.; admission is $16 to spectate or $20 to partici-pate. If youre interested in registering as an air guitarist, or for more information, visit www.usairguitar.com.
