Air Guitar Championship returns to Philly, cue the Rocky theme

How many times have you stood in front of a mirror blasting AC/DC or Metallica, recreating Tom Cruise's "Old Time Rock and Roll" freak out from Risky Business? If the number is reaching the triple or quadruple digits, the U.S. Air Guitar Championship is exactly where you need to be.

Air Guitar Championship returns to Philly, cue the Rocky theme

How many times have you stood in front of a mirror blasting AC/DC or Metallica, recreating Tom Cruise’s “Old Time Rock and Roll” freak out from Risky Business? If the number is reaching the triple or quadruple digits, the U.S. Air Guitar Championship is exactly where you need to be.

One winner from the Philadelphia regional will head to New York City in July to compete in the National Finals. The winner of the nationals will head to Finland in August to represent the USA in the World Championships. How isn’t this a Judd Apatow movie yet?

Last year’s Air Guitar regionals looked like a hell of a good time, just see these photos for proof.

The US Air Guitar Championships—Philadelphia Regional, starts at 9pm. 4.8.10 at Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave. $10. 21+.
