New music artists will mix it up with alternative sports athletes when Journeys Backyard BBQ makes a tour stop in Henderson Saturday at the Galleria at Sunset, 1300 W. Sunset Road.

The free event will be held in the south parking lot from noon to 7 p.m.

Up and coming bands from the Las Vegas area will perform while top pro skateboard, BMX and motocross athletes will demonstrate their sports in the tour's 60,000-square-foot playground of jumps and ramps.

There will be a battle of the bands beginning at noon and concerts by The Record Life at 4:40 p.m. and Saosin at 6 p.m.
