Couple of days back, I asked the invaluable Patrick Michels if maybe he'd be interested in heading over to The Loft for Thursday night's Air Guitar Regional Championship, if only because Air Guitar Nation happens to be one of my favorite rockumentaries of all time and, well, this looked promising. He was more than up for it, as evidenced by the slide show with which he returned.
Also juiced was our Darryl Smyers, who sat through five hours (!) of faux wankery and gratis Boone's Farm for this account. Sadly, Patrick was not there for Martha Young Guns's striptease. Still unclear if that was a good or bad thing.
