Friday, August 7: A lot of people have dreams of rock superstardom, but few can actually sing or play the guitar. Luckily, the US Air Guitar annual competition keeps the dream alive. Friday, the 25 most talented air guitarists in the country gather at the 9:30 Club to compete for the championship title, a cash prize, and the chance to represent our country at the World Air Guitar Competition in Finland. The competition starts at 8. Tickets are $20. Make sure you cheer on local participant Chris Paxton, also known as Sanjar the Destroyer. Now, that’s a rockstar name if we ever heard one.
There's lots more this weekend. Get our full guide to the weekend's events right here.
