This year, you won’t want to miss the look alike costume contest, live cover band, Selena impersonator, more than 10 DJ’s, a vendor market and a memorial in her honor.

These are some highlights for Sonido Clash’s 3rd Annual Selena Tribute Party:

A Sonido Clash tradition that has continued for their Selena Tribute Parties is to have a female headlining artist that will lead the night in our main room. This year the talented and versatile OméDJ hailing from Fresno CA will be rocking a special Selena set. When Omé isn’t busy making crowds dance throughout the Central Valley, she is organizing with the Fresno collective Dulce UpFront ( whose focus is building a beautiful and vibrant art scene in their community.


If you want to switch it up then the second room will provide a variety of sounds that will get you moving as well. One of the artists selected will be the Cutso a well-known DJ/producer/remixer and on-air host/mixer for Rebel Pop Radio on Wild 94.9  It’s an honor to have this veteran on the 1’s and 2’s mixing so slide through to the function at the Back Bar in Downtown San José to get groovy, get down and get your Selena on with Ya Friends.


One of our artist highlights is Chris “L7” Cuadrado who is a poet, MC, hip hop producer, photographer, graphic artist, creative director, and community organizer from Inglewood CA. Currently based in San Francisco, CA. L7 centers his community and oppressed people’s within his work and seeks to challenge and dismantle structures/systems of power and oppression. For the night of the Selena Tribute, L7 will be featuring his Selena inspired button designs. Get them before they run at the party April 15, 2017.
