L.A. punk icons Social Distortion took a break from recording their latest release to help the San Francisco Bay Area celebrate re-opening night at the magnificently restored, 80-year-old Fox Oakland (Oakland, Calif.). The former movie theater, which was shuttered for more than 40 years, is once again a Moorish art-deco palace thanks to an approximately $80 million renovation. The venue is situated in Oakland's burgeoning Uptown district and now serves as the flagship venue for promoters Another Planet Entertainment. At press time, the 2,800-capacity club was operating with a rented P.A. while plans are finalized for a state-of-the-art install expected to take place this month. Meanwhile, artists scheduled to perform at the Fox include Cake, Modest Mouse, Franz Ferdinand and B.B. King.
