Mix of air guitar and kareoke dominates the Boulder Theatre
The Boulder Theatre was packed with bodies and the atmosphere screamed enthusiasm on Saturday night during the showing of “Air Guitar Nation,” an air-guitar documentary, and an air guitar contest.
When asked how she thought the night went, the film’s director, Alexandra Lipsitz said, “phenomenal.”
After the viewing of the film “Air Guitar Nation,” the spectacle known as Aireoke took center stage. People took the stage doing their best to remember every lick, hook and tab on the air guitar.
The competition was cut short because the theater was closing, so a winner was never officially declared. However, Bjorn Turoque, one of the judges and one of the film’s stars, was able to say who might have won the competition.
His first pick was a 17-year-old known only by his stage name of Rok-Yer-Balls-Off. His jaw-dropping performance of Metallica’s “Master of Puppets” dominated the competition.
Toroque’s second choice was a lady he described as “the future of air guitar.” Betty Chronic aired her heart out to “Are You Gonna Be My Girl” by Jet.
