The new, summerlong “See You at the Circle” concert series in Dupont Circle kicks off this Saturday.
The concert series, sponsored by the Dupont Circle Business Improvement District, takes place on the second Saturday of every month through November.
It runs from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. through September, and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. October and November. A DJ performs during the first hour of every concert.
