A season of plenty

Take a peek into the autumn arts scene

by Karla Kane

What do Willie Nelson, stunt dogs, emergency preparedness and man-eating musical plants have in common? They're all a part of the local arts scene this fall. Whatever your particular interests, it's time once more to check out our annual picks for things to see, hear and experience on the Midpeninsula this September, October and November. This guide is, of course, but a small sampling of what we're most looking forward to this autumn, and event information is subject to change.

The Tom Harrell Quartet is at the art center auditorium and it’s free to the public but reservations are being taken online at the link you provided. (MusikWest has a show of classical that same time, 10/24, at The Mitch).

I love the band Cake, they played at Cubberley twice on their way up so because it conflicts with my John Santos Sextet I’ll be heading to Los Angeles to see them at the Greek down there if anybody needs a ride. Front row with us is $20 compared to $219 for Cake, whereas their lawn seats are $29 but the players look like ants eating aphids, plus the traffic sucks.
