Eberly Sunset Sessions Featuring Will Sheff of Okkervil River
February 24, 2019 6pm - February 24, 2019 10pm
This spring, Eberly is thrilled to announce “Sunset Sessions,” a live music showcase presented by White Light Exposure. The recurring monthly series, hosted in Eberly’s newly completed private rooftop event space, is designed to offer a rare experience: intimate sets by locally and nationally recognized artists accompanied by the setting sun over Austin. Tickets for the first showcase on Sunday, February 24 featuring Will Sheff of Okkervil River are on sale now.
Sunset Sessions was born out of the desire to see great bands in a beautiful setting without the hassle of braving large crowds, fighting for parking, or waiting in long lines. In true Eberly fashion, the restaurant has planned small bites and specialty cocktails inspired by each month’s featured artist. Eberly’s exceptional hospitality brings a unique level of comfort and spark to the typical live music experience.
This series is not only for the audience but also for the artists performing and the music community as a whole. A portion of the proceeds from each showcase will benefit the SIMS Foundation, a local non-profit providing mental health and addiction recovery services for Austin musicians, music industry professionals, and their families in the effort to support the well-being of the Austin music community. In addition, in the week leading up to each show, Eberly will offer the special, artist-inspired cocktail in the Cedar Tavern, with $1 from each cocktail sold being donated to the foundation.
Tickets for the first showcase are now available on Ticketleap.com and are expected to sell out quickly. Valet parking and a complimentary welcome drink of choice are included. Artist-inspired small bites and beverages will be available for purchase at the bar. Tickets for subsequent shows will be released the first week of each month. Doors will be at 6 p.m.
Guests will enjoy an evening of performances by expertly curated opening acts, resident vinyl DJs Mr. Gentlemen (Lucas Anderson) and DJ Terry Beckins (Steve Terebecki of White Denim), and headliners Will Sheff of Okkervil River, Tameca Jones, A Giant Dog, and White Denim. In addition, Laurie Gallardo, host of KUTX 98.9 afternoon music show and producer and voice of the Austin Music Minute, will be hosting the series and introducing the bands and SIMS Foundation.
Completed in fall 2018, Eberly’s new rooftop private event venue offers an elevated setting to complement a one-of-a-kind artist experience.
