It’s been widely known that President-elect Donald Trump is having trouble finding A-list musicians to play at his Jan. 20th inauguration. Now, Common and The National are adding insult to ego injury by playing Show Up!, a concert a day before Trump is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.
The free event will take place on at the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C. on January 19, the night before Inauguration Day, and promises “more special guests” to be announced in the upcoming days.
Hosted by Planned Parenthood (which the GOP Congress has vowed to de-fund) and All Access, “Show Up!” promises to serve as a “call to action for supporters of reproductive freedom to take action wherever they are.”
While the event is free, tickets are required for entry and can be acquired “through partnering organizations.”
