Approximately 200 people, a mix of demonstrators, students and folks on lunch break gathered to hear Browne reenforce the 99 percent.
Kevin Zeese, one of the concert organizers, says it's not the first time Browne has lent his support: "He's very dedicated to it," Zeese says. "He's already donated three bike generators, and he want to do more, so he'll spread the word in the music community, and help keep the movement alive."
Meanwhile, a total of five demonstrators remain under arrest following an overnight standoff involving a wooden structure illegally built over the weekend on Occupy DC's K street camp.
"It's so gratifying to have people stand up and put their bodies here and put their voices where they need to be, for our leaders to understand the importance of these issues," says Browne.
Occupy DC protestors says they will attempt to rebuild that shelter torn down by police over the weekend.
