Just heard from McNallica, Portland's pride and joy when it comes to air guitar greatness. She recently returned from San Francisco, where she competed in the US Air Guitar Championships on August 8. The Phoenix congratulates her on her impressive fourth place showing! (Hot Lixx Houlahan, who won for the second year in a row, now goes to Finland for the international championship.)
I talked to McNallica (Erin McNally) via email after her harrowing return to the East Coast...
