Because I'm such a fan of the hummus, I feel it's my duty to see Sabbra Cadabra tonight.

Anybody know set times for Sun Araw?

Also, what's the story with 285 kent? Are shows usually early, late, whatever? Is there a bar there or is it BYO? Any info will be greatly appreciated.

You probably wouldn't have a problem bringing your own to 285.
