NOT SO SURPRISING: Green Day will play the new and improved Fox Theater in Oakland on Tuesday at 8 p.m. Apparently it costs more to book the new, fancy theater than the DNA Lounge of the Independent. Tickets sold out in a matter of minutes at $49.50 each. But scalpers are going nuts on Craigslist and StubHub if you are really desperate.
TURNING JAPENESE: The Japanese Oshare kei band An Cafe will play Slim's, 333 11th St., in San Francisco. Tickets can be had from Tickets Now.
