In just over one month my dude, my sister, her fiance & I will be making our way across the Pacific Ocean to that crazy neon strip in the middle of the desert – Las Vegas!
Although Vegas is an amazing destination we wouldn’t have planned another trip to The States if it wasn’t for the absolutely incredible line-up of Psycho LV which spans across the last weekend of August at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino off the strip.
Here in Australia we have a lot of terrible festivals that normal humans avoid at all costs. Until recently we had a festival which brought some amazing hard rock & heavy metal bands down under. But never in my life have I had the pleasure of being able to choose from so many amazing bands on one bill. What’s even better is we get to see these amazing 3 day lineups in the comfort of air conditioning & away from the sun! I will literally be able to stumble from the gig to my bed in a matter of minutes… I’m not sure it could get any better?!
Of course I’m MOST EXCITED about seeing BLUE OYSTER CULT again because they’re ROCK N ROLL GODS! But the rest of the bands are just too good to pass up! If you haven’t seen the line-up yet you might need to sit down – I get all tingly just thinking about it!

If you read that line-up out loud you’d be panting for breath by now…that’s how huge and awesome it is! I’ve highlighted my “Must See” bands but of course I’ll try to see as many as I can because it’s ALL QUALITY!!!
With this adventure being JUST over a month away I’m starting to get suitably excited & our day to day plans are coming together. I can’t promise I’m going to make it out of this one alive but I sure am gonna party like it could be the last time! Stay tuned and I’ll spill the beans when we get back ! ha!
