Operation: Restore Maximum Freedom is an annual one-day fest put on by the Davis-Sacramento community freeform radio station, KDVS, going down this Saturday. The event is heavily attended not only for its boastful cast, but also for its fabulous location: the grimy, middle-of-nowhere barbeque and bar, Plainfield Station in Woodland (just outside of Davis).

Wooden Shjips - We Ask You To Ride

The DJs strive for a local and out of town presence for the lineup, which this year includes SF's Wooden Shjips, Thee Oh Sees and The Nothing as well as Silver Darling and Mayyors from the Sacramento region. Silver Darling comes down to the Bay Area every so often -- they're a mix of folk with Americana with a Southern twist on Crossbill Records (Garrett Pierce, Jake Mann). Mayyors (Sacramento) played SXSW this year, surely garnering the attention of lofi dance punk addicts.

Visiting from out of town is the noisy electro getup Lucky Dragons (openeed for Animal Collective in LA earlier this year), and Eternal Tapestry from Portland, who could best be described as psychadelic doom rock. More information as well as a music player with samples from the lineup can be found here, and here's the entire lineup for the day:
