Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig and Dirty Projectors’ Dave Longstreth are performing at a big Bernie Sanders rally in Iowa City, Iowa tonight, backed up by VW drummer Chris Tomson, the Lucas Brothers, and a university a cappella group. As a warmup before the main event, the group played a few songs to Bernie supporters at the local cafe Java House, including “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa,” “Unbelievers,” and a sing-along of “This Land Is Your Land.” Watch some clips below.
