    Joining the likes of Killer Mike, Vampire Weekend, and Foster the People, Red Hot Chili Peppers will show their support for presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders and perform their fiery brand of rock at an upcoming fundraiser in Los Angeles. 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:

    "In keeping with Bernie's commitment to bringing all people into the political process, there is a wide range of ticket prices to ensure all Angelenos can support Sanders' historic run for president.

    Red Hot Chili Peppers recently announced several headlining festival dates to take place this spring and summer in North America and Europe.
