Summer in El Paso would not be complete without Music Under the Stars. The 90,000 of you who attend this hallmark event at the Chamizal National Memorial (and now also Cohen Stadium) should agree. The rest of you need to pack your picnic basket and get down there this season.
MUTS, as it’s affectionately referred to, is a free, family-friendly concert series that takes place on Sundays from 7:30-9:30 p.m. every June and July. Through a partnership between the City of El Paso Museums and Cultural Affairs Department and the National Parks Service, the public gets to enjoy internationally and locally renowned musicians from genres as diverse as rock, cumbia, norteno, salsa, blues, and funk. 9700 Galveston Street; 800 S San Marcial St., 915-212-0110, facebook.com/MusicUnderTheStars
