At GK|CRE, we’re big fans of the city’s oldest landmark in continuous use, Oakland Cemetery. We’re drawn to its rich history, its beautiful meadows, its scenic architecture and its place in Atlanta’s development. But, what we’re really drawn to this weekend is the sure-to-be-enjoyable Tunes From The Tombs festival, a weekend of music and spirits benefiting Historic Oakland Cemetery.

This weekend.  May 21 & 22 11:00am – Dusk

Tunes is a weekend-long event that has amazing music amongst Oakland’s extraordinary monuments, mausoleums and gardens. And, just as Oakland is egalitarian, we’re also told that all genres of music will be represented; rock, folk, Americana, jazz, classical, and everything in between.  May we recommend The Drexlers?!

Tunes From The Tombs is sponsored by our friends over at AM1690 “The Voice of the Arts”, home to Sidewalk Radio with Gene Kansas, along with a host of other community active sponsors like the super creatives at CRAFT and the super tasty Doc Chey’s. Thanks to all of them, and now it’s just up to you to come on down.

And, once you’ve had some fun and heard some tunes, cap off your day with a bite to eat or (another) cold beer at Pencil Factory, home to newly opened Caramba Cafe and Hill Street Tavern.

Want to learn more about this fascinating place? Listen to Sidewalk Radio’s show, “Alive At Oakland Cemetery”.  Enjoy.

Oh, and did we mention that we represent a super cool office just across the street??  Yep, check out Oakland Park in between sets.  You’ll dig it.
