2009-08-07 Fox Theatre in Oakland, CA
There's no San Francisco show, but an Oakland show at the wonderful For Theater on AUG 7 just went on sale today at 10AM PT.

I just got mine using this code: volpe

Got my ticket too! I've never been to the Fox but I've heard from people who went there last month that it underwent a superb renovation.

Can I ask about the area? Is it relatively safe to walk a few blocks after a show? And if not, are there at least a lot of cabs like in the City?

There's a BART station a block from the theater.

According to the Fox Theater's website, it's been closed since 1966, and just reopened this Feb., so I bet it's awesome now.

Wow, I didn't know it had been closed for so long.

Thanks for the info on the BART. Is that the one on Broadway near 12th? So is that pretty safe at night to walk on Telegraph down to Broadway?

19th and Broadway station. It's practically next door to the station. Here's the map:

Thank you very much for the helpful information. That is really close to the venue. I am sorry to be a pest, but if I took that and got off on 12th at Broadway, is it relatively safe to walk on Broadway from 12th down to about 9th? I'm trying to find a place to stay and the closest hotels that are on Broadway don't allow ins/outs of the parking lot unless one pays for valet instead (and I don't really want valet touching the car). Thanks again!

I dunno man. I live in Hawaii. I'm just trying to figure out where I'm going to stay myself for the show.

I think the area around the fox is relatively safe. I live in North Oakland and I know the city has pumped a lot money into the redevelopment of the downtown area and the refurb of the Fox was a big part of the plan.
