Sen. Bernie SandersBernie SandersSenate Democrats leery of nixing filibuster 'Almost Heaven, West Virginia' — Joe Manchin and a 50-50 Senate Biden to seek minimum wage in COVID-19 proposal MORE (I-Vt.) is teaming up with The Strokes for a get-out-the-vote push on the eve of the New Hampshire primary.

The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate announced a Feb. 10 concert in the Granite State on Wednesday, tweeting to his more than 10 million followers that he would appear with the "Last Nite" performers at the Whittemore Center Arena in Durham the night before the state's Democratic primary.

The tweet included a play on the rock band's logo, with a silhouette of Sanders.


The White House hopeful has amassed a substantial musical following, with Cardi B, Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus among his high-profile supporters. 

Later this week, the bands Vampire Weekend and Bon Iver are poised to headline a series of Sanders rallies in Iowa ahead of the Democratic caucuses there on Monday.
