The event takes place February 5th at the Theatre at Ace Hotel in Downtown L.A.
RHCP also join fellow Sanders supporters within celebrity circles and the arts community that have pledged their endorsement of the Vermont senator over at Artists for Bernie. Some of those individuals include Will Ferrell, Margaret Cho, Jello Biafra, Belinda Carlisle, Meshell Ndegeocello, Bonnie Raitt, Lucinda Williams, Jackson Browne, Danny Devito, and Shepard Fairey, who, in a move recalling his work with the Obama campaign, contributed the poster art for the upcoming event.
The press release continues:
