Looks Like D.C.’s All-City Air Guitar Competition at Wonderland Kicked Ass


Did anyone check it out? I can’t believe I missed it! Photos and the following summary from “loveitmadly”:

“This past Tuesday evening D.C.’s own Paul Alexander, a.k.a. Fender Splendor hosted the first ever All-City Air Guitar Competition at The Wonderland Ballroom in Columbia Heights.

Air guitar veterans, novices and wildcards alike took the small stage before a packed house for a night of flips, thrusts, windmills and good ol’ fashioned face melting.

Baltimore’s Lance Karsten (a.k.a. The Shred) walked away the winner and Tim Granlund (a.k.a. The Six String General) may or may not be getting the lay of his life after shoving his tongue down the throat of a very cute blonde in the middle of his final round performance. The General took second place, with Kolb Ettenger (a.k.a. Vlad D.M. Wailer) placing third.”

  • I was there! My BIL competed… he did a pretty awesome job for his time in an air guitar competition. Frankly, we had no idea what we were getting into when we went but it was fun.

  • Oh yeah baby… but the annual World Championships in Oulu, Finland, is the real thing.. 😀

  • I am constantly amazed by the fact that I never have more fun than I do at Air Guitar competitions. This one was in some ways even better than the 9:30 ones – by the Air Guitarits, for the Air Guitarists. Tommy Fretless came down from…Philly I think? And Bettie B. Good, Brooklyn champ and infamous wielder of the “air toe” (Google her if you don’t get that) came down to guest judge. The final crowd-inclusive air jam to “Sweet Child of Mine” pretty much took the cake. Don’t ever, ever miss one of these. Ever.

  • this night might have changed my life. it was the most fun i’ve had in…. ever. even getting covered in ketchup/mustard. especially getting covered in ketchup/mustard? anyway, more please!
