Free Alien Ant Farm Concert, Family Activities at UTEP vs NMSU Pregame Party
It’s great to see a renewed interest by UTEP officials in producing a better overall game-day fan experience.
This season, that includes a handful of home game pregame parking lot parties with live music, food trucks, and kid-friendly activities. The next one is this Saturday, September 10, prior to the Battle of I-10.
El Pasoans are invited to gather in the parking lot next to the Larry K. Durham Center beginning at 4 p.m. for a concert from Alien Ant Farm and other game day festivities. Not only is it free to attend, but you also don’t even have to be going to the game.
Free Alien Ant Farm Mini-Concert
The parking lot pregame party will feature Alien Ant Farm playing a few of their jams before opening for Sublime later that evening at Speaking Rock. The entertainment venue sponsors the pregame party.
The band is best known for their nu-metal cover of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal," which topped the Billboard Alternative songs charts in 2001.
In addition to the live music entertainment, Pregame Party attendees will have access to various vendors and food trucks, kid-friendly activities, and the UTEP Alumni Association will be hosting a tent where you can stop by for a free agua fresca.
Fans can also cheer on the UTEP football team as they arrive at the stadium ready to defend their home turf against the New Mexico State Aggies.
Only one winner will be chosen at random from all eligible entries, across KLAQ and KISSFM. CONTEST ENDS Thursday, September 7th, 2022 at 12 pm.
The Miner Walk, as the parade-like celebration has been dubbed, happens about two hours before game time and includes the UTEP marching band and spirit squad leading the team to their locker room and the crowd in cheers.
