I love to spend an evening at the Reverb and hang out with friends, as well as take in good local and semi-national acts. The cover fee is traditionally minimal, and shows go on for hours. You also aren't kicked out at the end of the night like in most bar / venues. Many local-only shows are free if you are 21+ in hopes they will profit off your alcohol purchase. Minors can get in as well, usually for $2.
