The 2018 US Air Guitar Championships – Tour Dates Announced.

It’s finally time for the 2018 US Air Guitar season, and it smells a lot like cheap beer, sweaty spandex, and epic shredding of invisible proportions.

It feels like just yesterday that MOM JEANS JEANIE (Nicole Sevcik) prevailed at the Black Cat in Washington, D.C. With fingers of fury (plus a belly full of Franzia) she melted all the hearts and faces, taking home the USAG 2017 title.

She absolutely killed it at the Air Guitar World Championships in Oulu, Finland, but was no match for AIRISTOTLE (Matt Burns). For his second year in a row, he defended his title, bringing another World Championship back to the U.S. and officially making him the most decorated air guitarist in the history of the world!

And now, the 2018 season is finally upon us—

This season, there are now TWO paths to Nationals. Competitors will either go through the Regional Championships OR through the Wild Card Qualifiers.
Regional Championships
Starting on April 21 at Hourglass Brewery in Orlando, the Regional Championships will be held in cities with more history or experienced talent in the mix . There will be only ONE winner from each Regional and they will advance DIRECTLY to Nationals.
2018 Regional Championships
  • BOSTON — June 23 — Middle East
  • CHICAGO — June 29 — Sub T
  • DENVER - May 25 — Three Kings
  • KANSAS CITY — June 8 — RecordBar
  • NASHVILLE — May 26 — Little Harpeth Brewing
  • ORLANDO — April 21 — Hourglass Brewery
  • PHILADELPHIA — June 29 — Johnny Brenda's
  • PORTLAND — June 16 — Dante's
  • SAN DIEGO — June 30 — The Merrow
  • SAN FRANCISCO — June 22 — Brick & Mortar
2018 Wild Card Qualifiers and Semifinal
Also starting on April 21 at Right Brain Brewery in Traverse City, MI, are the Wild Card Qualifiers. Held in cities with less history or newer talent, ONE winner of each Wild Card Qualifier will advance to the Wild Card Semifinal on the Thursday before Nationals. This event essentially replaces the old dark horse format.
At the Wild Card Semifinal, a still to-be-determined number of top finishers will advance to Saturday night’s National Finals. The event organizer for every Wild Card Qualifier also gets a spot in the Wild Card Semifinal, as will a small number of dark horses selected from all competitions.
2018 Wild Card Qualifiers
  • Traverse City, MI — April 21 — Right Brain Brewery
  • Lawrence, KS — April 27 — The Bottleneck
  • Custer, SD — May 5 — TBA
  • Cleveland, OH — May 11 — Winchester Music Tavern
  • Sacramento, CA — June 9 — TBA
  • Houston, TX — June 16 — Lucky's Pub
  • Las Vegas, NV — TBA
