Update: members of Vampire Weekend and more to perform, present Bernie Sanders in Iowa City


Students for Bernie Concert

The Field House — Saturday, Jan. 30 at 6 p.m.

Update: Killer Mike has been removed from the list of performers for the Students for Bernie Concert due to a death in the family.

Senator Bernie Sanders’ Iowa Headquarters announced late last night that members of the indie pop group Vampire Weekend will be joining rapper and outspoken political activist Killer Mike in Iowa City on Saturday, Jan. 30 to perform and present the Democratic presidential candidate at the Field House on the UI campus.

Killer Mike has been spouting support for Sanders since early summer, going as far as inviting the senator to his barber shop in Atlanta to discuss (among many other things) social justice, free healthcare and the importance of voter turnout.

Other artists including Foster the People, members of the Dirty Projectors, Jill Sobule, Awful Purdies, Kay Hanley, Michelle Lewis, Hunger Games actor Josh Hutcherson, comedians The Lucas Brothers and more will be in attendance to perform and discuss their reasons for supporting Sanders and build momentum before the Monday night caucuses.

The doors for the free event will open at 5:30 p.m. with the event running from approximately 6:30-9:30 p.m. Attendants can RSVP here.
