The Guest List:
DUPONT CIRCLE -- A longstanding favorite destination among young Washingtonians looking to kick back and watch a sports game or simply enjoy a drink on the heated rooftop deck, Public Bar upped the ante on Dupont’s late night entertainment scene yesterday, with the launch of a new live concert series.

Appropriately titled ‘Public Rocks’, the string of rotating performances invites popular bands (primarily local) to take over the four-story venue’s main stage and DJ booth, for a single multi-hour set each month.

Kicking things off yesterday evening was popular local ‘90s cover band White Ford Bronco, who energetically breezed through a song list that included favorites from the likes of the Dave Matthews Band, Melissa Etheridge, Counting Crows, and Tom Petty, among countless others.

Spotted in the crowd sipping complimentary Ketel One Oranje cocktails and frosted bottles of Starr Hill beer (sorry, launch party only!) were a bevy of well-known D.C. media types, including just announced ABC 7 morning and afternoon anchor Steve Chenevey, 94.7 FRESH FM radio personality Tommy McFLY, and Washington Examiner columnist Nikki Schwab.

“I always envisioned Public as not only a sports lounge, but a go-to spot for live music in DC,” said Public co-owner Edwin Villegas who, along with co-owners Todd Cummings and Paul DeFilippes, could also be found mingling about throughout the event.
