It’s been 17 years since the Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla-Pérez was gunned down by the former president of her fan club, whom she had fired for embezzling money. Still mourned by her fans, the beautiful and talented performer lives on in song and spirit at tonight’s Selena Tribute Night at Fontana’s, where DJ Marcelo C. (of Nacotheque) celebrates her sound with his eclectic mash-up of electronica dance music. For those who never experienced the bootylicious singer in the flesh, the party also features a Selena impersonator. (Eat your heart out, J.Lo!)
