This is music to our ears — a new hybrid beer garden and live performance stage is open for the season on Boston Common, at the corner of Tremont and Boylston streets. The pop-up space has seating for over 400 guests and will provide entertainment for all Bostonians beginning today, May 4, through Nov. 1.

Here’s what you can expect:

Entertainment: The 5,000-sqft performance space will feature daily performances + programming from Emerson College on the UnCommon Stage. Performances will include local musicians, DJs, comedy shows, book readings, and more. Check out the performance schedule.

Brews: The Trillium Garden on the Common will be open Wednesday and Thursday from 4 to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 12 to 9 p.m. + Sunday from 12 to 6 p.m. Stop by to sip draft beers, seltzers, and wine.

Eats: The outdoor garden will offer a variety menu options from Taqueria El Barrio (think: tacos, tortas + chips and salsa).

Pro tip: The patio is dog-friendly, so leash up your pups and bring them along for the show.

Pass the ribbon: This afternoon, Mayor Wu will join the Parks and Recreation Department, Emerson College, and Trillium Brewing for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5:15 p.m. After that, guests can enjoy live music tonight from 6 to 9 p.m. and all summer long.
