Fall Arts Preview

fall_arts_prev_leftbar.gifBased on this autumn’s jam-packed arts and music schedule, it’s clear that even when summer goes away, Santa Barbara continues to play. It also means that it’s the time of year to unveil our annual Fall Arts Preview, featuring the best and brightest of the season’s cultural offerings. This time around, however, we compacted the guide into short listings — plus a handful of critic’s picks — in order to make more room for Brett Leigh Dicks’s Fall Arts feature on the upcoming 20th season of Sings Like Hell. But don’t fear, the extended events calendars are featured here. Click the links below for the full arts previews:
