In this Dream Tour segment, the indie rock band, Alt Fiction, reveals who they would want on their ultimate tour lineup. You can check out their picks, after the break.
Talk about an impossible question! This had us reaching deep, reminiscing on our musical inspirations, and generally questioning our existence. Not gonna lie, this was tough. For a band that has only played one show, there are plenty of lineups that we would kill to be a part of. But trying to choose between any band that has ever existed – dead or alive – well our brains couldn’t handle it. So we chose to be in the moment and write about a lineup that, if we had the chance to play with tomorrow, we’d lose our shit.
First up, opening the show we have Beabadoobee. It’s safe to say that she’s been one artist discovery this year that really sparked our interest. 90’s emo rock that feels nostalgic and fresh at the same time – we are pretty obsessed. Because she’s a big blip on our radar right now she had to be included on our dream tour, not only because we adore her music, but because we feel like the band and herself would bring a chaotically youthful vibe to the green room that is almost just as important as the show itself.
Next up – of course – we have Wallows. These guys have been taking it to another level lately. ‘Virtual Aerobics’ is one of the best iso-offerings that we’ve come across and we would include them on this lineup if only to see them perform this one live. They seem like super genuine fellas and we feel like a tour with them would be a hella good time. Maybe we’d do a song together? Maybe we could share a verse in their cover of The Beatles ‘With a Little Help From My Friends’? Maybe we’ll never know.
We were going to include another band but we felt like a three-band lineup is kinda perfect – especially when the bands are of this caliber. To be perfectly honest, if we got offered a show with Wallows and Beabadoobee, we’d probably die happy. No other band is required. You can help us die happy by going and streaming our new single ‘Can’t Get It Right’ – right now.
