Outpost American Tavern sits north and east of the Bishop Arts District a few blocks away from the Houston Viaduct. With it, Chris Jeffers and his business partners (the ones also behind Smoke, Bolsa and The Foundry) continue a run of carefully conceived restaurants and bars -- ones that transport you. Fried chicken joint The Foundry hosts shows on its sculpted stage from time to time, so it's not fair to call Outpost the group's first foray into this particular kind of nightlife. But if Outpost continues to put together the kinds of bills it did for a sort of grand opening event on Friday, it will soon be in the discussion as one of the live music hubs of the city.

The show featured solo sets from the front-people of Heartless Bastards, Baptist Generals and The Theater Fire. Photographer Mike Brooks was there to show you what it's like.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
