Paul McCartney * The White Stripes * My Morning Jacket * OutKast Daft Punk * Arcade Fire * Them Crooked Vultures * Wilco * Incubus * moe. * MGMT Deftones * The Roots * Procol Harum * String Cheese Incident * Placebo * Chemical Brothers Mos Def & Talib Kweli * The Mars Volta * Explosions in the Sky * N.E.R.D. * Lemon Jelly Slightly Stoopid * Flying Lotus * Mogwai * Portugal. The Man * The Expendables * RJD2
Damn, your lineup falls apart after Wilco...1) Mars Volta would be billed higher than moe. and probably higher than Incubus, 2) Procol Harum and Lemon Jelly? Really?, 3)Where are the mid-to-upper level indie bands (note: Mogwai, EITS, and Portugal. The Man don't fulfill this; think The National, Phoenix, The Black Keys, etc. this year)

Good call on Janelle Monae. That'd be a cool latenight show. And it would lend itself to Outkast also being on the bill, or at least Big Boi.
I would also like to commend you on the careful listening ear that is required to hear the deep-running similarities in the music of LCD Soundsystem and the music of Talking Heads. Couldn't agree more. I also hear a lot of Steve Reich's piano stuff in several of LCD's songs (noticably, All My Friends)

Saying Fat Mike shouldnt be there cause he is 43 is kind of dumb, when Dexter of the Offspring is older. However, Nofx is terrible live. There is no coherence to their shows. they take 2 to 3 minutes after each song to tell jokes. If you have never seen them it is kind of funny, but after a few times its really frustrating and annoying. PLus Fat Mike is an egotistical pompous prick making it harder to enjoy the show. Only way the show would be good or worth it is if they played the decline, which they probably would since they play it in cities where they have never played before. The Offspring are a much better live band. Really they should book Bad Religion and Rancid (even though recent records arent great they are still awesome live), Flogging Molly would also be very fun.
Doesn't take any careful listening to hear Talking Heads in LCD, pretty blatant.
Edit: And I believe James's infatuation is less with The Talking Heads and more with Brian Eno.
funny you say that. Talking Heads wouldnt be the first thing that popped into my head if someone asked me what LCD soundsystem sounded like but that was an exact response a friend of mine gave when answering that question. i definitely get the comparison but i still wouldnt describe them that way for whatever reason.
