Public Domain Brings the Energy Back to the BJC

Fan favorite Public Domain livened up a rather tired BJC early Sunday morning as we enter the final leg of THON. Public Domain had by far the most unique set list of THON up to this point, opting to heavily cover 90s hits instead of the standard popular music of today.

The local cover band started their set with “Follow You Down” by Gin Blossoms followed by another 90s favorite, “Two Princes” from one hit wonders Spin Doctors. The crowd immediately came to life as they belted out the Counting Crows hit, “Mr. Jones” followed by Deep Blue Something’s “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”

Five songs into the set, the band finally repeated a favorite of other acts at THON, Third Eye Blind’s “Jumper,” but the song got the crowd singing along nonetheless. Public Domain followed with more blasts from the past with “Slide” by The Goo Goo Dolls and “All Star” by Smash Mouth. Later, the band moved into a medley of Akon’s “Don’t Matter,” “Ignition (Remix)” by R. Kelly, and “Don’t Stop Believin'” by Journey.

The crowd’s energy came through with Public Domain’s rendition of “Wagon Wheel” to finish up the show, finally bringing the liveliness back to the Bryce Jordan Center.

The guys are at Cafe every Thursday night and at the Darkhorse every Saturday night if you want to hear more.
