Win Two Tickets To KCRW’s “Style Wars” Screening Party, July 28 in Hollywood

Style Wars

On Sunday, July 28, KCRW is partnering up with Oscars Outdoors in Hollywood to screen the seminal 1983 graffiti flick, "Style Wars," as part of its "Summer Nights" series. There will be live art by the one and only MEAR ONE, along with a conversation with the movie's director, Henry Chalfant, plus a gallery of graffiti art, dance performances by a crew of B-Boys, one of a kind t-shirts from the hairy, scurvy-afflicted screen-printing pirates known as Hit n' Run, and a round-up of food trucks sporting New York themes. The station’s own Anthony Valadez will provide the beats, while you hang out on a blanket and chill with whatever you BYOB’d. Basically, you want to be there. Oh yes, you want to be there. Only problem is the advance reservations are all taken. There is a stand by line that night, but your friends at L.A. TACO are looking out and we secured two VIP tickets for one lucky reader to win guaranteed entry. All you gotta do to enter is leave a comment to this post telling us what you love about Style Wars, or if you haven't seen it, why you want to check it out. TACO will then assemble its soldiers in a secret loya jirga to decide on the best answer and pick a winner this Sunday evening, so make your's funny or insightful as shit if you want to win. Entries will not be accepted after 5:00 P.M. this Sunday, July 21.

Good luck to everyone who enters! And while you wait to hear who wins (which will be announced next Monday), check out MEAR One on the Guest DJ Project and Anthony Valdez's Style Wars mixtape, they're dope!
