On the Green tour Michael Stipe played a metal chair with a metal bar, I think during World Leader Pretend.
When I was in high school, I very briefly managed a couple of acts. One was a guitar playing folk singer with percussion accompaniment, a guy playing a briefcase. He did give me my only live performance when he was booked in to a church coffee house and couldn't go on stage because he'd taken a horse tranquilizer (so I was told). So I jammed with his other guitarist. One hour of blues riffs - snooze..... He did perform at the open afternoon for high school kids at Reflections though, but then again that's not saying much. The scene was this 16 year old punk "music executive" sitting with the manager of Zino's auditioning. God love him, he was decent enough not to laugh us out of the joint.
