Saturday, May 12th will mark the 4th Annual Ottawa Air Guitar Championships at House of Targ.

PLUS - Triple-billed with post-show-party featuring: MONOBROW, MUFFLER CRUNCH and ONIONFACE


The Ottawa Air Guitar Champ will receive prizes, mad street cred and then go on to the National Championships in Toronto for their chance to be crowned the Canadian Champ and go on to Finland for the 23rd Air Guitar World Championships on Aug. 22-25th.

How does one do this?
Start with an Air Guitar persona, pick a song to rock out to for one minute, and if you make it to the second round… show off your improvisational skills to the tune of a song chosen that night by the audience. 

Air Guitar is about world peace. The saying goes: "When you are holding an Air Guitar, you can't be holding a gun"

Consider it your rock and roll duty, your volunt'air'ism so to speak - because proceeds of the event go to Right to Play Canada, helping children facing adversity world-wide through sport and play programs.

 (Ott Instrumental Stoner Doom)
An epic journey of sci-fi metal meets psychedelic stoner in this shocking saga of riff worship. A TARG Fave!

MUFFLER CRUNCH (Ottawa Doom Rawk)
HEAVY, HEAVY, HEAVY - 2 piece. Drums & an acoustic guitar??? How can this be so impossibly HEAVY? Not your momma's acoustic guitar.

ONIONFACE (Ottawa Rawk)
Raw, dirty, rock & roll sung primal. Scream-shouting aberrant lyrics like some mad-as-a-hatter sideshow carny-barker. Join them as they release the second single from their upcoming LP!
