    Sunset Sessions is one of Atlanta's longest-running free concert series, with shows every Sunday night at Park Tavern. These shows are 21+ but minors are allowed with adult supervision. The concerts are held on the tented outdoor patio area overlooking Piedmont Park. Shows are typically laid back and acoustic, featuring local artists and the occasional bigger name (often someone who got their start in Atlanta).
