Who knew the Energy Department rocked so hard? As part of the agency's "Lollachilipalooza" fundraiser for its 2014 Feds Feed Families charity effort, Deputy Secretary of Energy Daniel Poneman fronted his suitably named band, “Yellow Cake,” on Aug. 19 at DOE headquarters in Washington, D.C.

 A post on the National Nuclear Security Administration's web site had photos of the event. Poneman was joined by Deputy Chief of Staff Jonathan Levy on drums, Deputy Assistant Secretary Julio Friedman on keyboards, and, according to the post, a special guest vocals by Anna Ruch from the Office of the Secretary. 

Alas, no sign of musical contributions from DOE CIO Robert Brese.
