The State Line restaurant in Sunland Park is well known for their fantastic barbeque, but they've also been building a reputation for providing quality entertainment and live music. Their 2012 music series included an impressive line up of solo and group acts including Cory Morrow, John David Kent, Scooter Brown, The Derailers, Cody Johnson and Las Cruces' own rising star of country music Bri Bagwell.

One of the most popular acts performing this summer, however, is straight out of El Paso – the Dirty River Boys. Their unique blend of rock, country and bluegrass has been building them a solid fan base, and once you see them perform it's easy to see why. Their high energy show comes together with four part harmonies and acoustic melodies played on a number of different instruments including guitars, harmonicas, fiddles and drums. Chris Mosser of 98.1 KVET radio station in Austin, TX said "The Dirty River Boys have done what seems impossible: they have combined timeless roots-music and country sensibilities into a mesh of haunting melody, searing performance energy and DIY attitude. For those who enjoy a little danger in their entertainment choices, the Dirty River Boys fit the ticket nicely." ///
