‘Music Under the Stars’ Starts Sunday with Free Jenny & the Mexicats Concert
Music Under the Stars, one of El Paso’s signature summer events, is scheduled to get underway this Sunday at Cohen Stadium in Northeast El Paso.
"Wait, Whaa? Don't you mean the Chamizal?" you might be asking yourself. No, not this year. For the first time in the series’ history, the free outdoor concerts will be split between two venues with the first half of the season taking place at Cohen and the last four Sundays of the series at its original location, the Chamizal National Memorial.
Jenny & The Mexicats gets the honor of kicking off the 33rd season of MUTS. The Latin alternative band has won over international audiences and critics with their diverse and unique multicultural sound that has been described as "bilingual genre-blending grooves that mesh everything from flamenco to rockabilly." (Personally, I think they're pretty cool. They kind of remind me of old school No Doubt.)
Gates will be open at 5:30 p.m. and the free Jenny & The Mexicats show will get underway at about 7:30 p.m. Parking at Cohen Stadium will be free.
Music under the Stars will take place every Sunday through July 24. Here’s what you need to know before attending, and, for those who like to plan ahead, here is where you can find the 2016 Music under the Stars Lineup.
