Los Angeles, are you ready to Feel the Bern? Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders continues his Southern California trip tonight, with a rally at the Wiltern Theatre.Just yesterday the Vermont senator caused a scene as he strolled down Hollywood Boulevard, shaking hands and posing for selfies, ahead of his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tonight at the Wiltern, Sanders will be stumping for his usual causes, according to a release from the Sanders campaign:

Sanders will discuss a wide range of issues, including getting big money out of politics, his plan to make public colleges and universities tuition-free, combating climate change and ensuring universal health care.

Unfortunately, free tickets to tonight's rally have already sold out—though if you are dying to go it probably wouldn't hurt to line up early at the theater, located at the corner of Wilshire and Western in Koreatown. Conveniently across the street from a Metro station! The event is scheduled to start at 7 p.m.
