WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama's upcoming West Coast fundraising trip will feature a musical lineup worthy of Grammy gold.

Obama campaign officials say the Foo Fighters, fresh off winning five Grammys on Sunday, will perform at a Los Angeles fundraiser on Wednesday. In San Francisco on Thursday, the president's supporters will hear a performance by the former frontman for Soundgarden, Chris Cornell.

And on Friday, Seattle band the Head and the Heart will perform at a fundraiser in Bellevue, Wash.

Obama is holding eight fundraisers during a three-day trip to Wisconsin, California and Washington state to benefit the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fundraising account for the president's re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee. The president raised more than $220 million in 2011 in preparation for the general election race.
