It’s been more than a decade since you could see live music under the Whitehurst Freeway in Georgetown. That era came to an end this weekend, as Gypsy Sally’s quietly opened on the second floor above Malmaison. Here are three things you should know...

1. They’re going for the rootsy/hippie thing. Walk up the stairs. Look left. There’s a room where you can buy merch... and sticks of incense. Look straight ahead. There’s a room built largely from Pennsylvania barn wood. And on the stage: mostly Americana music and rock acts, and mostly acoustic.

2. All the views are good. So grab one of the elevated tables, or an even-more-elevated high-top along the back wall, and order a pulled-pork sandwich. Or if you don’t mind a little volume, take up a bar stool right next to the stage and start investigating the six taps in front of you, like Abita’s Purple Haze.

3. You can sit in a VW bus. It’s parked in the adjoining Vinyl Lounge, replete with vintage concert posters and a red bar inlaid with old records. There, you can listen to DJs spin full sides of classic albums and order a Big Pink, with cachaça and housemade raspberry jam. Still to come: art installations and a smoking lounge outside.

No, not that kind of smoking.
