Common and The National will be performing at Show Up!, a free concert being hosted by Planned Parenthood and All Access, according to Pitchfork. The show is occurring at Washington D.C.’s 9:30 Club on Jan. 19, the night before the inauguration.

The National confirmed the news on Twitter posting, “We’re at the very beginning of a long and tough battle to defend these basic rights.”

“More special guests” will be announced over the days leading up to the event. Though the show is free, tickets are required and can be obtained “through partnering organizations.”
