Fox

The Legendary Rescue of the Fox Theatre Oakland

Mario and Erma DeLucchi were running late to the auction. It was 1978, and the historic Fox Theatre in Oakland was going up for sale at any moment. One company wanted to turn it into a parking lot, but the DeLucchi family were determined to save it. Mario dropped off his wife so she could get inside while he searched for parking. She arrived just in time to win a bid on the Fox for $340,000.

Last Night's Photos: The National at the Fox

Throughout their 11-year career, Brooklyn's The National has continually produced hauntingly beautiful albums that inspire both healthy rock outs and reflective broods. It's that breed of high/low that makes their latest release, High Violet, one of our favorites of the year and an album perfectly suited for this manic depressive weather.
