The online show, which is being produced by the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, airs this Saturday, October 31, starting at 10 p.m. ET. Weir will be playing with Wolf Bros, his side group that also features acclaimed producer/bassist Don Was and RatDog drummer Jay Lane. Other performers include Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready and Fall Out Boy.

Also taking part in the event are several Rocky Horror Picture Show cast members: Tim Curry, who played Dr. Frank-N-Furter; Barry Bostwick, who portrayed Brad Majors; and Nell Campbell, who played Columbia. Other celebs participating in the livestream include Jason Alexander, Wilmer Valderrama, Lance Bass, Rosario Dawson, Seth Green and David Arquette.
