    Default Times of Day That Coachella 2012 Artists Sing/Rap About

    This will apparently help us determine when that act will play.

    Does anybody else in this thread think The Weeknd on during the day is even a remote possibility?
    I'll go first. The narratives of both "The Chronic" and "Doggystyle" primarily took place during the day if you've seen most of the music videos that came from the albums. Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg will probably play on the main at 4pm because of this.

    Kaiser Chiefs has a song called "Saturday Night," so I think they'll play at night. They also have a song called "Heat Dies Down," which probably means a sunset slot.

    Friday

    The Black Keys: 3:30 - Main
    Breakbot: 10pm - Sahara
    Frank Ocean: 4pm - Mojave
    M83: TBD
    Yuck: 2:30pm - Outdoor

    Saturday

    Azealia Banks: 6pm - Gobi
    Kaiser Chiefs: 7:30pm - Outdoor
    Martin Solveig: 12pm - Sahara
    Radiohead: 12pm - Main
    Squeeze: 10am - Campground

    Sunday

    At the Drive-In: Midnight - Outdoor
    AVICII: 1:08am - Sahara
    DJ Shadow: 5pm - Outdoor
    Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg: 4pm - Main
    First Aid Kit: 2pm - Gobi

    This will be like the "Tell Us About the 2012 Lineup" thread, but with logic and reason.

    I'll save everyone the trouble of listing Sahara artists. They're all playing at night.

    Sounds like there's going to be a Bay City Rollers vs Kaiser Chiefs conflict.

    I think the only way to do this with consistently is to analyze and digest the youtube link provided for each artist on the lineup page. That is, I assume, how Paul Tollett determines scheduling.

    Azealia Banks' video looks like it takes place around 5:30, which fits with the thematic narrative because cunts generally get eaten after work. To be safe, we'll say 6:00 in the Gobi.

    The lyric "Something tells me that I'm dreaming," along with the thematic narrative of making a girl's wish his command, over a funky bassline, suggests to me that this is a night time act. Also, note the darkness of the background in the video, with the central characters needing to be colored in neon to be visible. 10:00 PM Sahara.

    He even says "Trust me, I'll be there." Confirmed.

    Yuck



    The thematic narrative of this video is the band, especially the lead singer, getting away from something. During the day, I might add. This makes sense because people often get away from things during the day, so as to avoid dangerous night driving. 2:30, most likely on a stage outdoors. It would be weird to see them perform this song at night when I know damn-well it was set in the day.

    This one is difficult. Novacane is usually only administered during normal dentistry work hours (9-5), suggesting a day time performance. BUT, "Novacane," here, is metaphoric. He references Jigga and Z-Trip's Coachella performances, both of which occurred at night, but also alludes to ingested cocaine for breakfast--typically a morning meal.

    Law of averages suggests a 4 PM Mojave set.

    "Bitter winds are coming in, and I'm already missing the summer. Star comes cold, but I've been told I was born to endure this kind of weather."

    The thematic narrative is pretty clear in this song, and throughout the album. It's cold, bitter, windy, etc. This performance would be a waste, because of the thematic narrative, during the day. And Paul T. knows this.

    9:00pm Gobi.

    No analysis of thematic narrative -- M83 is still TBD.

    At the Drive In



    No real video for this song, but I think the combination of the song title and the band's name (you can't go to the drive in during the day...amirite?) gives you a clear indication of when they'll be playing.

    Martin solveig has a song about coming to say hello. You say hello when you first see someone. Therefore he will be the opening act. 12pm start time.

    Thanks for the contributions, you guys. Keeping with the thematic narrative of this thread, I've updated the first post. I'll be submitting these times to clumsy, to aid him in his mock-scheduling efforts.

    I disagree with this interpretation. Clearly they are playing early in the day. The video you posted was filmed in Joshua Tree NP.. that's right by Coachella. And it's daytime in the video. Plus there's a fire, and they're at the Gram Parsons botched-cremation site, and they're singing about Emmylou Harris. Gram and Emmylou did a killer cover of "We'll Sweep Out The Ashes In The Morning".
    QED.

    And of course they have cold, bitter, windy thoughout their album. They're Swedish. It's plenty cold, bitter, and windy in Sweden in the daytime too.

    edit: You're wrong about them playing the Gobi too. That video is set in the Mohave desert.

    Those are all good points, Tom. So maybe First Aid Kit doesn't HAVE to play after the sun goes down? I think a good compromise is maybe when it's starting to get more cold and bitter on the polo field. Hmmm. The "star comes cold" line is what's getting me. I know stars exist during the day. I mean, the sun is a star. The sun......is a star. Fuck. Yeah, First Aid Kit is playing during the day.

    Bon Iver



    I originally thought this set would be taking place in a new Air Conditioned frosted dome to best capture the recording conditions of the previous album. However, after further examination of the lyrics he talks about telling people to be patient. This tells me it doesn't have to be in a cold and frosty new dome but just very late at night or even early morning when the desert cools off a bit. (we all remember how patient we had to be for Prince and he didn't even sing a song with those words in it). Finally, he says "in the morning i'll be with you". In fact the coachella camping area and Wisconsin wilderness are almost identical in every way.

    That clinches it. This set will likely start around 4:30AM and conclude at sun up. It will also take place on the campground as it closely resembles the Wisconsin wilderness.
