It's official: Psycho Las Vegas, which thrived in its first festival visit to town in August, will return to town for its 2017 edition.

The event, focused on stoner-rock, metal and psychedelic rock, has announced an August 17-20 run at the Hard Rock Hotel. Tickets will go on sale Wednesday, November 16 at—of course—4:20 a.m. Vegas time, with $99 passes available to the first 100 buyers. Regularly priced passes will range from $199 for GA to $499 for VIP (plus fees fees), and $129 (plus fees) for single-day tickets. (No word yet on which ticket site will handle the sale.)

The festival's initial lineup unveiling has also been promised for November 16. This year's 100-plus acts included Alice Cooper, Electric Wizard, Sleep, Blue Oyster Cult, Drive Like Jehu, Converge, High on Fire, Baroness and Pentagram. Revisit the Weekly's 2017 wish list here.

  • Among the handful of Nevada-based films screened at last week's shorts fest was a few music videos for local acts.

  • The group’s footprint here has included a Joint residency, Kiss by Monster Mini-Golf and Kiss-themed wedding packages.

  • It has become more political, with songs about the #MeToo movement and bias in the news. And its sound is noticeably more aggressive.
