The “Rudolph Auto Group-State Line BBQ Free Live Music Series” continues this year with live performances from bands offering a showcase of music from rockabilly to traditional country--and everything in between. Now in its 13th year, the series will again benefit the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank and is sponsored by and held at The State Line, 1222 Sunland Park Dr., El Paso, TX 79922.
