Snoop Dogg to headline Democratic National Convention "unity party"

Meanwhile in Cleveland, Republicans can boogie to the very relevant stylings of Kid Rock and (probably) Ted Nugent

Snoop Dogg (f.k.a. Snoop Lion, f.k.a. Calvin Broadus) will be headlining a "unity party" to cap off the Democratic National Convention this month, according to Politico.

The event — co-hosted by Democratic super PACs Priorities PAC, the House Majority PAC, and the Senate Majority PAC — is set to take place on July 28, the final night of the Convention in Philadelphia.

Los Lobos, meanwhile, will perform at the Convention earlier in the week, according to Politico.

Not to be outdone, an unofficial Kid Rock concert at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland is scheduled for July 21, during the final night of the Republican National Convention.

Like the Democrats', the Republican convention will no doubt be contentious, with an ever-widening rift between the moderate Kid Rock wing of the party and the gun-toting outsiders among Ted Nugent's caucus.
