The cast of This Is Spinal Tap is ready to go to 11 to help defeat Donald Trump: as director Rob Reiner announced on Thursday, the cast of the beloved mockumentary will reunite virtually in order to raise money for the Democratic party of Pennsylvania, a key swing state in the upcoming presidential election.

Reiner will be joined by Harry Shearer, Michael McKean and Christopher Guest for the Oct. 14 event, which will be hosted by comedian Patton Oswalt. “Every dollar raised goes directly towards ending Trumpism by winning Pennsylvania,” the official invite for the reunion reads.

“Democratic enthusiasm in Pennsylvania is already turned up to eleven — we’re the Keystone State and the key to winning this election. We’re excited to partner with the Spinal Tap team to bring even more energy to power Democratic wins from the State House to the White House,” Jason Henry, executive director of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party, told The Hollywood Reporter.

The reunion is being organized by the same organization that recently put together the Sept. 13 Princess Bride virtual table read — which also featured appearances by Reiner and Oswalt and raised $4.25 million for Democrats in Wisconsin, another key battleground state.
