B-Sides: Vive Selena 

SI UNA VEZ

Although the Quintanilla family confirmed that a hologram Selena will indeed be touring in 2018 as well as releasing new music, you can get your fix of the Queen of Tejano before then when Casino del Sol (5655 W. Valencia Road) hosts a tribute to the legendary singer. Over 21 years after her tragic death, Selena still holds a place in the hearts of many music fans with infectiously poppy tunes like "Como la Flor" and "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom," though her real mark is that of a cultural icon with many referring to her as the "Mexican Madonna." Singing in both English and Spanish, Selena's work crossed over effortlessly and gave a voice to Mexican-Americans in the U.S. pop culture sphere in a way that hadn't really had before. Plus, her bustier collection was on point.

So, you can celebrate the life, skills and, yes, fashion of this trailblazing pop star with fellow fans on Thursday, March 31 (21 years ago to the day that she was shot by her terrible "friend" whose name will not be mentioned here) at the "Vive Selena" tribute concert. The show kicks off at 8 p.m. in the Paradiso Bar & Lounge in the casino. The 18 and over event is free to attend. You can visit www.casinodelsol.com for more information.
