Lords of Airness
After a one-month blitz around the country, the Air Guitar Regionals makes one of its last stops before the finals in New York and the world championships in, for reasons that are never clear, Finland. The event is hotly anticipated, as the Bay Area is teeming with air guitar hopefuls, also for reasons that are never clear. Alameda's own sombrero-wearing Craig Billmeier -- sorry, I mean "Hott Lixx Houlihan" -- won the U.S. finals last year with his flamenco/speed metal onslaught and his glorious "salute then collapse" signature glam move. Tour vet Bjorn Turoque MCs the event, and SF Weekly's own Jennifer Maerz cuts down the weak as one of the judges.
Date/Time: Thu., June 28, 8:00pm
