Kanye West's beginning his 2020 campaign a little early -- first there was the announcement at the VMAs last month, followed by a well-timed Vanity Fair interview. What's next for candidate West? A just-announced performance at a San Francisco Democratic National Committee fundraiser, the perfect place to network with the political elite.

According to a report from NBC, West will attend the Oct. 10 event, an "afternoon concert" held at the city's Warfield theater, and "is expected to perform songs from his latest album, SWISH." There are some other notable guests on the RSVP list as well, namely President Obama himself.

The only thing left to do (short of purchasing tickets which, at press time, have not yet been made available) is speculate on the set list. Would Kanye West actually debut new music at a political fundraiser? The answer seems like a clear "yes" -- though even if not, we'll likely have the video of President Obama watching West perform "All Day" to look forward to.
