Toad’s Place has announced an opening date – June 7 – and some summer concerts (with, we’re told, more to be added.)

The concert line-up is diverse: The Squirrel Nut Zippers, Ricky Skaggs, smooth jazz guitarist Ken Navarro, and  ska-punk band Reel Big Fish.

They’ve also posted for jobs at the restaurant to be located in the building- Highwater.  For those of you familiar with Charlottesville, it’s to be managed by the co-owner of the Mellow Mushroom- a decent pizza restaurant there.  Let’s hope it’s a decent place to eat, and not just a concert-venue add-on with food as an afterthought.
