Another Planet Entertainment Reopens The Fox Theatre In Oakland

Well, if you felt the Easy Bay was sorely lacking in midsize concert venues, you're about to get your fill: Another Planet Entertainment has renovated and reopened The Fox Theater as a Warfield-sized music venue in Uptown Oakland. We have to say we're curious how this will pan out, but judging by Oakland's hipster-cache, and APE's variety of musical inroads, we're guessing it could become 2009's hot alternative to The Fillmore. The initial artist lineup will be announced on January 5th (with an opening gala on February 5th), so in the meantime you'll have to busy yourself by looking at pretty renovation pictures over at the official site. Looks pretty awesome, folks. Neat-o.
