Psycho Las Vegas has been over for a full week now, so what better time to start dreaming about next year's edition? This past weekend brought good news, too: a Facebook event listing for Psycho 2017, back at the Hard Rock Hotel, from Thursday, August 24 through Monday, August 28.

This year's bill featured metal giants (Electric Wizard, Sleep, Baroness, Candlemass), classic-rock survivors (Alice Cooper, Blue Öyster Cult) and lots of other interesting excursions, into post-hardcore (Drive Like Jehu), grunge (Mudhoney), noise-rock (A Place to Bury Strangers), electronics (Zombi) and even comedy (Brian Posehn). Which means pretty much anything goes for next year, right?

Here are a few acts we'd love to see there, and of course, add picks of your own in the comments section below. Never know when Psycho's booking team might be looking.
