On Oct. 2, KDVS 90.3 FM presented the 10th installment of the Operation: Restore Maximum Freedom Festival at Plainfield Station in Woodland.
With the evening sunlight barely lingering past the sycamore trees, music buzzed through the air and all through the night. The smell of cigarettes and cheap beer created a laid back vibe reminiscent of late summer nights. But perhaps more endearing was the informal nature of the set up. Each band performed a short set on either one of the two stages.
The set list was relatively diverse and eclectic. From Random Abilideze holding up the hip-hop ground to Dreamdate mixing in indie electro-pop and experimental-punk sound explorations by Aids Wolf, musical boundaries were undefined. Other performances included The Ganglians, Wounded Lion, Super Wild Horses, Mattress, Greg Ashley, Young Prisms, Buk Buk Bigups, Big Black Cloud and Psychic Reality.
In case you missed it, here are some photos from the event. KDVS will host the next O:RMF festival in the spring.
