Thread: Guessing the set times - FRIDAY

    Default Guessing the set times - FRIDAY -Updated

    UPDATED: 3/17 @ 10 pm
    What do you think??????????????



    I have no life (except for 3 days every April) and decided to put this together for us. Looking forward to discussing this with you all. Look it over and let us know what you think! Definitely need input from everyone to get our best guess.

    Obviously there are no TIMES in there because that would be impossible to guess, but just looking at the stage and the order. Also looking at avoiding major conflicts.

    Where the fuck is Goldfrapp?

    EDIT: Also, a Breeders/National/Jens Lekman conflict? I should murder you.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    As far as the additions, I put them all on Sunday except Aphex Twin, which we think is on Saturday. Sunday had the fewest (BY FAR) so by default got the adds that we didn't yet know about.

    If Battles are closing a stage, it wouldn't be the Outdoor theatre. It would be the Gobi. Also, Serj Tankian is rumoured to be closing the Outdoor Theatre. Also, a Battles/Fatboy Slim conflict would be terrible. AND... Vampire Weekend are no way going to be playing that early. They are one of the most buzzed about bands this year.

    also, if Sandra Collins is doing her dvj-x1 video mixing, there's no way she will play at noon.

    I'm actually in on this too, so I'll be replying on behalf of the original post.

    - I could see Battles closing a stage, maybe Outdoor or Mojave, but no way the Gobi. They are MUCH too acclaimed to be playing the Gobi. Are you kidding me?
    Exhibit A:


    - I agree about Serj. That was kind of a miscommunication. Apparently he's supposed to close the Outdoor.

    -Vampire Weekend are buzzed, yes. But I bet anything they are either playing early or going against something better. I do see them playing in a tent though. (this year's Clap Your Hands Say Yeah style)

    ---- As far as additions go ----
    We're still unsure of where they'll be added.

    This should be an ongoing discussion.
    We'll take input, agree upon things, update the "set times" poster,
    and see how close we can all come to predicting the order of the sets.

    Rogue Wave and Vampire Weekend should trade spots. Swap DIOY,Y? with Cut Copy, move Cut Copy down under Slightly Stoopid, swap Les Savy Fav and Slightly Stoopid (if you're going to have rockin' dance music on the OT, at least have it back to back), since SS are going to get a good spot despite playing shitty music.

    Also, in terms of reality, swap Tegan and Sara with Sharon Jones (SJ&TDK would work better with a smaller crowd, anyway), and move DIOY,Y? (now in Cut Copy's slot) into Midnight Juggernauts' slot, pushing everyone else down a slot. Also, switch the Swell Season with Jens Lekman... They won a fucking Oscar, people. They won't be playing early.

    Exhibit A:
    Battles are huge in Japan. The Japanese LOVE thier Battles. There was an estimated 10,000 people watching that performance. Over here... not so much.
    I see Battles playing in one of 3 spots, somewhere between...
    Outdoor theatre: 4-6
    Mojave: 6-8
    Gobi: closing

    As long as they don't conflict with Fatboy Slim or Sharon Jones, I don't care when or where they play.

    this is a fun idea.

    1. Goldfrapp is supposedly playing friday so i think we should add them until we hear otherwise.

    2. Spank Rock gets put against the headliner two years in a row. what did they do to deserve that. sleep with Paul T's wife? my guess is they get like hot chip's spot in the mojave last year or something.

    3. Aesop Rock is waaay too big for the gobi and swell season is billed to high on the poster to play that early in the mojave, they may play there but not that early. I think Outdoor Theatre for both of these which can be easily done because Les Savy Fav would probably go over much better in a tent and you guys are going to give Sonic Youth's spot last year to a group that doesn't even have an album out yet (does it offend you yeah?)?

    Still gotta say...
    Nooo fucking way will Battles play the Gobi.
    No. Way.

    Either Outdoor or Mojave. As far as the time, who really knows? But I'm guessing either sunset or late at night.

    I commend you on the effort to create such a nice little picture, but I don't think you thought about things too much.

    Just because some act is the "biggest name" to play a stage/tent does not guarantee they are the closer.

    Does It Offend You, Yeah? Will not be on the outdoor theatre. More like the Mojave.

    Vampire Weekend would def be higher. Battles will def play after sunset and would not close Gobi.

    Wow, mad props for photoshop skills. A few things:
    1. I can't imagine Serj Tankian and Raconteurs conflicting, since both are major rock acts with hit(s) on the radio
    2. I think Battles and Dan Deacon will play earlier in the day,
    3. I think Vampire Weekend will play a couple hours later since so many people won't admit that they are horrible.
    4. The Swell Season will definitely be later in the day and not in a tent. They played the Wiltern back in November and have won an Oscar since then.
    5. Architecture in Helsinki doesn't really have a main stage sound.

    But overall I think it's very feasible. The bad thing is I'd be very very bored the first half of the day.
    7/26 Au Revoir Simone @ The Roxy, 8/1 Arcade Fire, the Unicorns, Dan Deacon at the Forum, 8/2 Burger a-Go-Go, @ Observatory, 8/9 Warpaint @ Observatory, 8/10 Warpaint @ The Ace, 8/23-24 FYF Fest, 9/11 Swans @ Roxy, 9/18 Neutral Milk Hotel @ Hollywood Bowl, 9/19 Chvrches @ Palladium, 9/30 Cibo Matto @ the Roxy, 10/9 Zola Jesus @ El Rey, 10/16 Massive Attack @ Greek Theater, 10/26 Asobi Seksu & Slowdive @ Royale

    Explain, please. Also, if Sandra Collins didn't open the Sahara in '02, she ain't doing so this year.

    You managed to conflict the 3 acts I want to see the most on Friday. Battles, Fatboy Slim, and Mum.

    Thanks.

    07/29 Boris - The Mohawk
    08/31 Little Dragon - The Moody Theater
    10/03 Shonen Knife - Red 7
    09/12 GvsB IV w/Panda Bear, SOPHIE, DOSS, Ejecta - Granada Theater
    11/7,8,9 Fun Fun Fun - Auditorium Shores
    11/12 The Horrors - The Parish
    11/23 Caribou, Jessy Lanza - The Mohawk

    - Vampire Weekend playing later in the day, maybe even Mojave
    - Aesop Rock playing Outdoor Stage, later in the day
    - Black Lips in the Mojave
    - Swell Season either playing Main or Outdoor Stage

    Dude... this isn't real.
    And there aren't any specific times posted...
    Just the order of bands on all the stages.

    AND we'll be updating this with input from everyone.
    So for everyone with twisted panties, calm the hell down.

    i'm wondering if there might be an electronic act closing the mainstage...just seems jack johnson would be too low key to end a night with.

    Alright, updated again.

    I think this looks a little better. And the Sahara really isn't my thing, so any input would be good.

    Looks a lot better. All I can think of is...
    1. Jens Lekman and Vampire Weekend would fit better in the other's respective timeslot and stage.
    2. Missing Battles would suck, but that sort of thing happens every year, so whatever.
    3. Redd Kross is now officially Friday, according to the daily lineup.

    Thanks.

    1. I kind of figured Jens Lekman would be this year's Jarvis Cocker.
    2. I really think Battles will have a sweet set time. I still kind of think the Outdoor but, eh.. I don't know.
    3. I think I should switch Redd Kross with Architecture in Helsinki. (yea? nay?)
