If you swing by Eberly, 615 S. Lamar Blvd., you’ll notice the stairwell on the right side of the building. Make your way up and you’ll discover a lovely, cozy spot, overlooking the railroad tracks and trees nearby. That, darling, is Eberly’s rooftop – with an enclosed space that houses a small stage, mind you, but it’s the top o’ the building. This is the home of Eberly’s Sunset Sessions, a music series supporting a wonderful cause.
Sunset Sessions came from an idea to feature up-and-coming music artists in an intimate setting, but it’s evolved into a spectacular early Sunday evening experience, all in support of the SIMS Foundation, which provides access to affordable mental health and addiction recovery services for the local music community.
Tomorrow night’s show features Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears, with Mamahawk kicking off the event. Doors open early at 6 p.m., and just a few tickets remain at this link. Your humble Austin Music Minute host, a proud SIMS client and supporter, will serve as emcee. Hope to see you there.
