Every year a day or two before the US Air Guitar Nationals is set to take place there is another chance for hopefuls that did not quite make it into that setting by actually winning or placing appropriately in a semi-final. An invite only competition, the contestants are given the top-secret location just a day or two away from said event. This year it was set in a hole in the wall in an actual hole in the wall, the stage a postage stamp on cinder block (well, not literally but it was pretty small). The back room of Bar 107 was packed like a can of sardines and there was a groper afoot. The judges were gazing down onto the stage from balcony seats like roman emperors at The Coliseum. If you claimed your place and if you didn't ever leave said place you enjoyed a fun show. For those of us who had to go to the bathroom, well... Tough luck. Thankfully there were some good samaritans who took video and we can at least show you our two NW representatives "Sahexy" and "Kara Picante" who did proceed to The Nationals but only as gleeful supporters... This year.
