Organizers of the annual Air Guitar World Championships oughta consider holding next year's event at Rockbar Inc. in Scottsdale, particularly since many folks in attendance at it's grand opening on Friday, December 2, were strumming faux Fenders and invisible Ibanez while classic rock hits came from the sound system.
When they weren't providing their gnarliest Eddie Van Halen impersonations, Rockbar Inc's patrons also unleashed devil horns or sucked down spirits served by waitresses sporting Mohawks, fauxhawks, and teased hair. It all made for an interesting evening, which our cameras captured for this week's Club Candids slideshow.
