Los Angeles was given the honor of hosting last year's US Air Guitar National Championship, which rocked the House of Blues Sunset on August 17 2013. San Diego's Jason "Lt. Facemelter" Farnan, a perennial finalist, had delivered a dominant first round performance and was back on stage for Round 2. In a new twist, the compulsory song was a new composition written and performed live on stage by Brendan Small (of Metalocalypse fame). Lt. Facemelter came out when it was his turn, and with the help of a giant cardboard cutout of his face, delivered a blistering performance that seemed rehearsed for months. There was no doubt about it, Lt. Facemelter was our new US Air Guitar Champion.
Today, we salute you Lt. Facemelter!
Tonight we search for LA's best air guitarists to represent us on the national stage. This is your chance to possibly witness the birth of the next Lt. Facemelter. Can our champion go on to dethrone him? Get your ass down to The Viper Room and find out. Tickets are available here: http://tinyurl.com/airguitarlatickets. Let's rock and f'ing roll!
