The set-up is underway for today's Festival en el Barrio, which starts at 1 p.m. in downtown's El Presidio Neighborhood. The bands include Calexico, the Heartless Bastards, the Rebirth Brass Band of New Orleans, Sergio Mendoza Y La Orkesta and a whole bunch more.
The weather is beautiful, the music will be great, food trucks will be serving tasty food and you even get free admission to the Tucson Museum of Art. Plus, you're helping raise money for radio station KXCI.
Seriously, is there some reason you wouldn't do this? Get on down there this afternoon. More details here.
