Let’s Play a Game: Concert Line-up Edition

If you could create the most perfect concert experience, what would it be? The first in a series of many “game” ideas I have for Sputnik, your challenge over the next few days is to come up with a four slot concert line-up for any genre. Users will cast their submissions over the weekend and on Monday I will put them all into a list and we’ll vote on which is the winner. To keep this interesting (and to promote music exploration) there will be a few rules behind the line-up that you submit.
1Johnny Cash
At Folsom Prison


Rule #1: Your line-up must consist of four artists. One submission per user.
2Reel Big Fish
Our Live Album Is Better Than Your Live


Rule #2: Your line-up must consist of AT LEAST two lesser known acts. Think of emerging artists or artists that have been under the radar for their careers. This gets a little tricky, as some artists are big in their respective circles, but not big in “mainstream” terms. This is totally subjective so I would just say challenge yourself to think outside the box and choose some artists that could use more love.
3Nirvana
MTV Unplugged in New York


Something to Consider: having a bigger artist on your setlist will help draw a bigger crowd. If you have a bunch of smaller acts that’s fine, but if part of the purpose of designing a tour line-up is to garner recognition for smaller acts, it might be smart to make your headliner a bigger name in the genre.
4Coheed and Cambria
Neverender


Rule #3: Artist must relate in sound or style but NOT NECESSARILY GENRE. For example: Danny Brown often talks about how Joy Division heavily influenced Atrocity Exhibition. As a result, if you wanted to do a concert where Danny played Atrocity Exhibition in full while supporting Joy Division, go for it! Think outside the box! Try to surprise us with your connections. That being said, think back on the disastrous tour of Slipknot and Coheed. That did not benefit either band…
5Bob Marley and The Wailers
Live!


Rule #4: Artist do not have to be alive and bands do not have to be together. It would be awesome to see Murder by Death open for Johnny Cash.
62Pac
Live at the House of Blues


Rule #5: As I mentioned above, if you want an artist to play through an album in its entirety, please specify in your comment. Ex: write “The Mars Volta”: Frances the Mute.

Also, if you want a band from a certain era or line-up type something like 80's Metallica or Deep Purple with Ian Gillian.
7Mastodon
Live at the Aragon


Rule #6: If you want to have artists perform side projects or be in multiple bands that is fine. For Example: If Killer Be Killed opens for Mastodon, that works.
8Talking Heads
Stop Making Sense


Rule #7: You may use preexisting concert line-ups, but where's the fun in that?
