Public Enemy is feeling the Bern.

The politically vocal hip-hop group from the East Coast is set to perform for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, who is throwing a rally at the Los Angeles Convention Center Sunday. Comedian Sarah Silverman and beloved actor Dick Van Dyke will also be there.

The rally/concert arrives two days before Super Tuesday, when California and 13 other states will hold primary elections. The Sanders campaign launched a poster saluting Public Enemy’s 1989 single “Fight the Power” to promote the upcoming event.

Public Enemy isn’t the only musical act that has cast its vote for Sanders. At a rally in Durham, N.H., earlier this month, indie rockers the Strokes warmed up the stage during Sanders’ get-out-the-vote concert. The band premiered two new songs from its upcoming album, “The New Abnormal.”
