Can you believe this Friday, March 31, it will be 22 years since Selena was shot dead by her friend and former fan club president, Yolanda Saldivar? I can still remember where I was and what I was doing when I heard the news, and I bet you can too.

All this weekend, Alamo Drafthouse will be honoring her life and legacy with a Anything for Selenas celebration

The title, as any card carrying Latino should know, is a reference to one of the most memorable lines from the 1997 movie, Selena. In the scene leading up to the line, a couple of cholos in a low-rider stop to help Selena and her family pull their tour bus out of a ditch.

Their good deed results in the hooptie losing its rear bumper, but the owner refuses to let his idol "Salinas" pay for the damage. "Are you kidding me, man?" he asks incredulously. "This bumper is going to go on the wall of my garage, carnal. I’m going to put a little sign under it, it's gonna say, ‘This bumper was pulled off by the bus of Salinas!’"

As many times as I've seen the movie, that scene still makes me LOL.

Highlights of the Anything for Selenas weekend include daily screenings of the now-classic movie, Selena Karaoke, a (what I'm sure will be a sparkly bustier filled) look-alike contest, and an outdoor concert by the all-star Selena tribute band Bidi Bidi Banda from Austin.

Your ticket purchase to any of the Selena screenings gets you access to the concert on Sunday, regardless of which day you saw the movie -- as long as you hold on to your ticket stub. If you want to attend the tribute concert but don't want to watch the movie, Alamo Drafthouse is selling concert only tickets through Eventbrite for $3.80, plus their fee ($5 total).

Check out the daily schedule of festivities below as posted on the Alamo Drafthouse Facebook page. Until then, keep calm and Bidi Bidi Bom Bom.
