Does anyone else have any favorite "non-traditional" acts from years past?

For example, I loved the Blue Man Group doing their Complex Tour show back in 2003 (heck, GV liked it enough to have them do it both nites!).

What other non-traditional acts have been there? The ones that come to mind are
- Comedians of Comedy
- Ian McKaye doing a lecture in one of the smaller tents with someone else I can't recall
- that "Def Jux Showcase" thing where they gave over the Gobi to the whole Def Jux constellation of people for one long block of time
- In either 02 or 03 some LA band called "The Peak Show" had their own little fenced off area back by the tesla coils and would perform little 15 minute sets between main-stage sets.

Anyone remember any others?
