Most of Austin's big seasonal concert series are still a few months away, but there's a new player in town this year. On the last Sunday of the month from February to May, South Lamar restaurant Eberly will present Sunset Sessions, evening concerts on its rooftop.

Kicking off the series Feb. 24 is Will Sheff of Okkervil River. Tickets, $43, are available via the venue's website. The ticket price includes valet parking and one cocktail, beer or glass of wine. Proceeds will benefit the SIMS Foundation.

The series continues through the spring with performances by Austin acts Tameca Jones on March 31, A Giant Dog on April 28 and White Denim on May 26. Tickets to those shows will go on sale the first week of each month. All four shows will include opening acts that have not yet been named.

At the shows, Eberly's menu will include "small bites and specialty cocktails inspired by each month’s featured artist," according to the press statement announcing the series. Doors open at 6 p.m.; the shows conclude at 10 p.m. Eberly's rooftop space is an indoor venue with a patio.
