Hey Rockers, we have a cool contest for you today... Halloween weekend in Las Vegas there will be a two-day rock fest with dozens of bands and a crowd that loves to dress up in wild costumes. And you know the old saying about what happens in Vegas, right?

Tom Petty will be headlining, the Mars Volta will be there, the Black Crowes will be there, Fiona Apple will be there, and we want you to be there.

So here's how you can enter... go to the Vegoose website and write us a haiku that includes at least one other band that will be performing that we haven't mentioned in this post. Send us as many haikus as you want in one email - ok fine, not as many haikus as you like, limit them to six.

Send your email to, make sure to put in the subject header Vegoose. You have until Friday at 4:20pm. By sending us your haiku you are allowing us to use your poetry on this blog. The winner will be announced next week.

Now these tickets are just for admission to the show, how you get there and where you stay is on you, but we have a faint recollection of their being some lodging in Sin City.

Good Luck!
