Live music venue and restaurant The Rustic announced on Wednesday that it will launch a lineup of intimate concerts.

The Safe Sounds Music Series brings musicians back to The Rustic’s stage, with COVID-19 safety measures in place including limited capacity, social distancing, face masks and staggered arrival times for guests.

Taking to the stage on Sept. 18 at The Rustic downtown at 1836 Polk St. is alternative rock band Jackopierce. The 25,000-square-foot building has a retractable roof, plus a sprawling patio.

Along with music, guests can enjoy locally-sourced homestyle dishes and smoked meats. Options include beer-can hen with ancho-lime butter and jalapeno bread, slow-cooked carnitas with orange peel, garlic and chile de arbol, and smoked brisket tacos.

The bar menu features 25 wines, 20 beers on tap with a Texas leaning, and classic and creative cocktails.

The Rustic, from Kyle Noonan, Josh Sepkowitz and Texas country artist Pat Green at FreeRange Concepts, has locations in Dallas, San Antonio and Houston. The second Houston outpost at 1211 Uptown Park Blvd. opened in July.

“At The Rustic, music is part of our DNA, and we are proud to offer this series as a way to support musicians during these difficult times,” Noonan said in the release. “By leveraging our 30,000-square-foot inside/outside space, we are able to create this unique opportunity that allows patrons to experience the Safe Sounds Series. We understand how important it is for our guests to have a safe place to relax and enjoy live music, which is why we are committed to continuing to deliver a controlled, socially-distant and safe environment.”
