Saturday night’s appearance with Sanders wasn’t the first for the band, who joined him several times during his 2016 presidential bid.

On Friday night, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon played an acoustic set at the senator’s rally in Clive, Iowa to drum up additional support for Sanders ahead of Monday’s caucus. Killer Mike and the Strokes have also recently thrown their increased efforts behind Sanders, with the latter appearing at a rally for Sanders in New Hampshire on February 10.
