There's been some talk around town that Oakland's Fox Theater--which rolled out its snazzy, remodeled digs in February--was being underutilized, especially with promoters Another Planet Entertainment, involved in the massive Outside Lands festival and also booking shows at the Greek Theater and the Independent.

Talk, as they say, is cheap, however. Tonight the Fox hosts the first of eight shows in ten days, with NYC's post-punk trio the Yeah Yeah Yeahs , featuring fabulous frontwoman Karen O, headlining tonight and tomorrow. Ms. O. may be the most interesting female vocalist to hit the rock scene since Chrissie Hynde, and she shows little signs of slowing down or becoming any less edgy, despite the band's success and fame over the past nine years. See what all the fuss is about tonight by clicking here for ticket info ; warm-up for the show by watching a video of "Zero" (co-starring SF's own Warfield auditorium).
