Guys, it's fall!! Can't you tell from the crisp fall air, autumn leaves crunching under your feet, and untraceable but ever-present scent of chestnuts roasting on an open fire?! Uhhh at any rate, regardless of the autumnality* — or lack thereof — going on outside, it's time for our annual Fall Arts special issue, in which we tell you damn near everything you need to know about this season's arts offerings. We've got Jason Victor Serinus on the Oakland East Bay Symphony (Community-oriented! Totally awesome!); Claudia Bauer on all that the East Bay dance world has to offer this season (Water ballet! World-acclaimed flamenco! So much more!); Rachel Swan on what the big East Bay theater companies have in store this year ("Vibrant and relevant" programming!); and finally, Kelly Vance on the next few months in film (One word: Moneyball!). Grab a cup of hot apple cider and read the whole thing here.
*totally not a real word; sorry. But shouldn't it be?
