The National did it. So did Jay-Z. Now who? Not that we’re on our hands and knees sobbing and begging whatever mythical force that’s up there to deliver us another six-hour performance, but it’s fun to dream and speculate. And because it’s such an elaborate, demanding task, both on the performer and to wherever and whomever they’re playing, we thought we’d place our tongues in our cynical cheeks and get a little wise with our choices. Are any of these likely? No. Are they supposed to make sense? Lord no. But do they present a funny situation to dream up? I’ll answer that with another question: Is anyone who agrees to a six-hour performance of one song insane?
Read along, dream on, and then share your own six-hour conjuring.
