Postal Service would be a bummer, but Pitchfork usually misses out on the payday-based reunions. Lolla tends to snatch those up (ATDI, DFA1979, others I can't think of). Pavement was a notable exception, but they fit Pitchfork too well.
I think you're right. It always seems to be the last thing they "report" before shutting off the lights for the weekend (sans last year)
In previous years, they usually make pitchfork announcements at around noon or so. And then they keep that up as their major news story for the rest of the weekend. The only way that would change is if their is some huge news story like someone big's passing or a huge comeback story or something. Otherwise, they will keep that up until monday morning.
I've got a weird memory when it comes to pointless stuff, and I'm about 99% sure it came out between 4 and 5 central last year. Not sure about previous years but that'll be my official guess.
It came out mid day last year. I was at work in the middle of a client meeting and my phone started going crazy so I remember this vividly . It might not have come from Pitchfork directly (XRT might have leaked it early?) but the lineup was definitely out well before 5pm CST last year.
