Friday's Rockin' Roundup - County Fair Edition

This weekend I am going to the County Fair. That’s right, corn dogs, ice cream, beef jerky, and all the farm animals you can imagine. My niece and nephew are involved in a farm auction, so it provides me with an opportunity to show support for them, and allows me to spend time with family (something I never get enough of). It’s also the second to last hurrah of the summer (with Labor Day BBQs wrapping things up next week).

I love going to the fair. Maybe it has something to do with reading Charlotte’s Web so much as a child, but the County Fair is really exciting for me. There’s so much to do, and it is so much fun. Add in the additional time with family, and it becomes the perfect weekend – as long as I don’t eat too much.

Here’s what rocked this week:

The Latest From Vie’s Verses
Over at Hard Rock Hideout, my bi-weekly column, Vie’s Verses was published. This one speculates on whether this is the end of Aerosmith. Things are looking bleak for the band overall. This really could be their last dance.

Midas – Rock The Highway Voting Continues
The top 20 finalists have been selected in the Midas/Spin magazine best road song contest. Click on the link to listen to the songs and vote for your favorite. One of these bands is going to win a nice prize and help their career massively. You’ve got until next Friday (September 3rd) to get on and vote. Go help a rising star!

Spider-Man The Musical Is Starting
It is finally seeing the light of day. With words and music by U2’s Bono and The Edge, the Spider-Man musical is finally going to begin. Warm up performances have already started and the play officially opens on November 14, 2010. For tickets visit U2’s website (click the above link) or

Win A Chance To Meet Kiss
You could win the opportunity to meet Kiss live in person, or Aerosmith, Lady GaGa, or Brad Paisley. Not sure why you would choose those last two over Kiss or Aerosmith, but hey, to each their own. Click on the link above for contest rules and your chance to enter.
