McNallica Slays in San Fran

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...

How did you do?
:Out of the 24 regional winners I won 4th place. Came in 3rd place in the 2nd round, 4th overall.

What was your favorite part of the experience?
:Rocking with all the other air afficiandos, such an awesome group of people. So much air, so much rocking air! Sharing the stage in front of a sold out crowd of 1500 with such talent was priceless. We all destroyed it.

Least favorite?
:The flight home, 24 hour ride

What was the crowd like?

:everyone was high, high on all the air

What was your favorite song?

:Windhammer's dethklok choice and...Houston RockIt, after tearing his pants off, did Kelly Clarkson's "Since You've Been Gone."

How was it different from last year?

:Better city, better talent, better crowd, better beer specials!

Will you do it again next year?

:Already picking my song.
