Public Enemy performs a live concert as part of the event Gods of Rap at Royal Arena in Copenhagen.

Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders will be hosting a rally in Los Angeles on Sunday (Mar. 1), and Public Enemy is set to perform. Comedian Sarah Silverman and beloved actor Dick Van Dyke will also take part in the event.

The rally comes just two days before Super Tuesday (March 3), during which the greatest number of U.S. states (California included) will hold primary elections and caucuses. Sanders has already won the New Hampshire and Nevada primaries.

Public Enemy's performance comes as no surprise, as in their decades-long career, the group has often focused on political commentary and African American issues in their music.

The rally will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center, with doors opening at 3 p.m. See event details here.
