When is the 4th Annual Toys & Tunes event in El Paso?
This year the Toys & Tunes music charity event will be taking place at the Lowbrow Palace, 1006 Texas Avenue on December 16th from 2pm to 6pm. Entry for the show is an unwrapped toy to donate for the children or a cash donation.
When did Toys & Tunes get started?
Toys & Tunes started in 2020 as a charity livestream held by Genuine Reference Studios, during the height of the pandemic, to benefit the children of CASA of El Paso (Court Appointed Special Advocate); who help abused & neglected children in the family court system.
The first event had artists record the sets in the studio & would be shown in a "telethon" style to be streamed on YouTube, Twitch & Facebook.
Since then over 30 different local artists have helped raise money for local charities with help from local businesses such as Solar Smart Living, Crooks Skate Shop, & the El Paso Community Foundation.
Some of the local artists that have been part of Toys & Tunes include Kikimora, Krystal Poppin, Liz Tina, Elia Esparza, Amalia Mondragon, Mia Antifa, Jamal Streeter, The Barbed Wire Open Mic Community, Villain's Kiss, the Let There Be Rock music school, The Other Half, Collide the Gemini & Feline Fox.
