 Steffen gave you the hint of the date-field.

It depends on how your artists are defined. You can define custom 
fill-functions which fill selects and if you may fetch the artists 
generically out of the database you may use the foreign_table queries to 
fill the select.

But this is no easy topic, you may read the TCE-form doc to get an idea 
about it. I don't know how well the kickstarter maps existing TCE-form 

But don't give up, both of your field can be realized as you imagine them.
