Think you're an air guitar bad-ass on par with "Mean" Eric Melin? Well, the 2009 KC Regional U.S. Air Guitar champ has organized the first annual Lawrence/Kansas City Air Guitar Championship. While not affiliated with the USAG -- which means you're not qualifying for anything other than fabulous prizes -- it's still a chance to get up on stage and battle other faux-guitarists.

The rules:

Each performance is played to 1 minute (60 sec.) of a song. The 60 seconds can start anywhere in the song.The instrument must be invisible & be a guitar. Air roadies are allowed, but must leave the stage before the performance. Back-up bands (air or real) are not allowed.

Judges include the Flaming Lips' Kliph Scurlock and our own blogs editor, Justin Kendall. Contestants need to show up on Wednesday, May 5, at 8:30 p.m. The rest of the rules are at the event's Facebook page.
