The Red Clay Music Foundry in Duluth plans to reopen later this month with a “socially distant” concert with The Justin Varnes Sextet.

The show will take place at 8 p.m. July 27 and is the first of a few in-person concerts scheduled at the Eddie Owen-owned venue. Tickets are $25.

ExploreAtlanta music venues can open in July, but will they?

In addition to limited seating the concert will also stream on YouTube.com/EOPLive with a “tip jar” for the performers.

According to venue management, numerous protocols will be instituted to adhere to social distancing practices.

  • Limited, general admission seating for about 75 (the venue holds 260).
  • Attendees will be seated in PODS (groups of people comfortable sitting together).
  • Every other row will be roped off, and only one entrance and exit will be available (with doors propped open).
  • Masks are required.
  • Bar and bathroom lines will be taped off to ensure 6 feet of space between patrons.
  • Sanitizers and cleaners will be available throughout the venue and there won’t be any interaction with items such as ticket stubs or receipts.
  • Ushers will maintain social distancing guidelines and will orchestrate exiting from the venue to prevent a mass exodus.

Other upcoming concerts at Red Clay Foundry include Seven Days on Aug. 1; Ben de la Cour Aug. 8; Will Payne Harrison & Jess Jocoy with Kate Coleman Aug. 21; Forever Abbey Road Aug. 22; and The Currys and Highbeams Aug. 29.
