Weekend music picks: Tigres and RAS Day and Lyle, oh my!


Pachanga presents Los Tigres del Norte at ACL Live. With a noted career that has spanned more than four decades, Los Tigres Del Norte continue to break barriers with their masterful storytelling. The iconic norteño supergroup has become a prominent voice for Latinos around the world, and they don’t shy away from social justice and political issues. The multiple Latin Grammy winners have been featured in documentaries, feature films and publications such as The New York Times. At their shows, Los Tigres Del Norte are known for performing sans a set list and instead let the audience tell them what to play. $59-$89. 8 p.m. 301 Willie Nelson Blvd. acl-live.com. — Nancy Flores
