This Spring and Summer, Radio 105.7 and Park Tavern are presenting a free Sunday night concert series, “Sunset Sessions”, featuring “buzz-worthy” alternative bands. Shows will be at Park Tavern under the air-conditioned Garden Tent beginning this Sunday April 26th and running through September 6th. Doors open at 6pm; the music starts at 7pm and ends at 11pm. The first headliner of the series is Bad Suns with The Electric Sons and Kiev opening for them. Must be 21+ to attend.
Bad Suns is a band worth seeing! This will be their second appearance in three attempts at playing Atlanta. The band’s first attempt in February 2014 was foiled when their van broke down as they left a gig in New Orleans bound for The Basement in East Atlanta. They played to a boisterous room at The Masquerade last October and then returned to Atlanta a couple of months ago to headline a sold out show at Vinyl. The band arrives in Atlanta fresh from playing the Coachella Music Festival in their home state of California these past two weekends.
Their inaugural single, Cardiac Arrest, was a surprise hit for Bad Suns in the summer of 2013 and they had to hustle into the studio to record their 4 song EP, Transpose (released January 2014), followed by their first full length LP, Language & Perspective (released June 2014).
This past year has seen the up and coming post-punk band touring in support of 1975 and New Politics. Bad Suns is now wrapping up a tour of their own having sold out venues across the country. Check ‘em out Sunday night at Park Tavern (map) for free!
