Workshop is rolling out a set of farewell concerts in honor of its closing coming up this spring. The series, Listen on the Lawn, is a social-distanced weekly outdoor concert series produced by Tobin’s Market with help from Butcher & Bee. As if a full bar and five local food stalls like Sushi Wa and Sino Tacos are not reasons enough to stop in, these events are a collective farewell to the food court that has given a platform for up-and-coming chefs and restaurateurs for the last four years. 

“Collaboration over competition,” said Tara Pate, marketing director for Butcher & Bee. “It’s really an effort to support local musicians who haven’t been able to play in a year.” All ticket sales go directly to the bands, and shows are every Friday in April and May. “Knowing that we’ll make it to the end of May with robust programming feels like we’re going out on the best foot possible, and that the memory of Workshop will be that of a full roster of concepts and events for all ages.” 

Each $80 ticket includes admission for up to eight people and a 10-by-10-foot, open-air, social-distanced square. Catch local funk rockers Tomatoband on April 23. The complete schedule with all info is at

Tobin’s has also teamed up with Commonhouse Aleworks in Park Circle to host the monthly Third Thursday Concert Series. It kicked off its first two concerts in April and May with Jeff Caldwell Trio and Little Bird’s Ben Mossman and Oleg Terentiev.
