Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders held a rally at the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Kohl Center yesterday, where celebrities like Rosario Dawson and Shailene Woodley turned up for support. Best Coast also stopped by for a performance, playing “Feeling OK” from last year’s California Nights plus the title track from their 2010 LP, Crazy for You.

“For me, really wanting to do this was to come here and, you know, get people encouraged to like get out and vote on Tuesday, because it’s a very important election,” lead singer Bethany Cosentino told local station WKOW.

Also this weekend, Sanders drew support from Wisconsin native and Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon at a rally in Eau Claire.
