Do We Have This One?? Is This Tropeable? Needs a Better Description.

Most bands languish for years playing in local dives and never knowing any real stardom. But once in a blue moon, one band will attract regional attention, then the attention of a major label, and suddenly, their name is appearing as top billing, even above established big name bands! They have become... The Headliner!

Compare Super Group.


Examples:

  • Steam Powered Giraffe used to be a local San Diego group, busking at Balboa Park and playing at the San Diego Zoo (both of which they still do). But after a couple of years on the convention circuit and getting played on steampunk radio shows like The Clockwork Cabaret, they are now headlining their own shows, often even above steampunk giants Abney Park.
