Planning to be in Central California this weekend? Wanna see hella local bands play for a cheap price? Stop off in Davis May 16 for KDVS' annual shindig, Operation Restore Maximum Freedom . As first posted on underground music website the Bay Bridged, ORMF features a large Bay Area contingent: headliner Wooden Shjips, plus Thee Oh Sees, Strip Mall Seizures, The Nothing, and Please Quiet Ourselves, along with groups from Placerville, Portland, L.A., and Sacramento. Tickets are a ridiculously-cheap $10 at the door, and as the Bay Bridged notes, "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)." Sounds like a great excuse for a road trip, if you needed one. Here's an mp3 of Wooden Shjips' "Shrinking Moon for You" to get you in the mood.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
