U.S. Air Guitar Competition 

When: Fri., May 11 2018
It's been a few years since the U.S. Air Guitar competition has come through Cleveland. But this year, Cleveland will be one of more than 20 stops on the circuit. Tonight, the Winchester Tavern will host the contest, which will likely feature about 20 competitors vying for a spot in the semi-finals that take place in New York on Aug. 2. Competitors perform to a 60-second guitar edit of their favorite song. Judges then rank the performance according to "technical merit" (i.e., does it look like they are playing a real guitar?), "stage presence" (i.e., do they excite the audience and the judges?), and "airness," the quality of performance which transcends the mere imitation of a real guitar and becomes an art form all its own. Three-time Washington, D.C. Champion and Northeast Ohio native Jerrod "Dick Diesel" Dewey will host the event. Tickets are $5 in advance, and $8 at the door. The contest begins at 9. (Niesel)
