Air Guitar Nation has inspired a legion of would-be rock gods to display their mastery of the invisible axe. One of its stars, Bjorn Turoque, is in town to host two evenings of 'Aireoke', which will be as outlandish and outrageously good fun as the pitch-perfect documentary.
Edinburgh should brace itself for the invasion of the Air Guitar Nation! This week sees the arrival of the documenatry’s director, Alexandra Lipsitz, and a man at the forefront of movement, Björn Türoque. The outlandish Türoque will be hosting two evenings of Aireoke, on Thursday August 24 at 23:00 at Cabaret Voltaire and on Friday August 25 at 22:00, after the screening of Air Guitar Nation, at The Mercat Bar. Please note that entry to Cabaret Voltaire for the event on Thursday 24 August is £5.
So just what is Aireoke? Well, Air Guitar + Kareoke = Aireoke. Choose any song from our vast list, get on stage and wail away. No karaoke machines, no bouncing balls, no crappy videos, and absoloutely NO guitars.
Don’t miss the chance to see the heroes of the underground movement on film at the EIFF. Air Guitar Nation follows the efforts of Björn Türoque, C-Diddy and others to capture the World Championship, held annually in Finalnd. The documentary has received plaudits wherever it has played, earning the Auduence Award at the South By Southwest festival.
Winners of EIFF 2014’s short film awards and two of its documentary premieres have been nominated for 2015 BAFTAs.
