The Lucky 13, 1106 Solano Avenue, Albany, CA (at San Pablo)
At the junction of San Pablo and Solano in Albany there was a somewhat mysterious place called The Lucky 13. “Lucky 13” was the tag for a popular Oakland soul station (KDIA 1310 AM), and the Lucky 13 was an after hours teen club, only open between 2-6 am. East Bay soul groups (like Tower of Power) would play there, promoted by the radio station, but the history of this venue has been very hard to unravel - so any memories would really help out.
