La Bamba

Time Out says

The omnipresent Lou Diamond Phillips got his start playing teen rock'n' roll idol Ritchie Valens in La Bamba, which traces his brief life and short-lived fame—from being discovered by an LA record producer to becoming a star to his death in a plane crash along with Buddy Holly and the Big Bopper on "the day the music died." LDP mimes surprisingly convincingly to Los Lobos' admirably faithful cover versions of Valens' songs. See the musical biopic for free at an outdoor screening at Montebello City Park (199 S Taylor Ave) in conjunction with LACMA's off-site Art + Film Lab.
