Our good friends and Squeeze supporters Headquarters on 4th is throwing a graffiti battle.  Here's the low down straight from Nat Losbaker:

Come throughout the afternoon to watch the development of 10 graffiti writers battle it out. The event is to be held in our new three door garage studio. The studio acts as a creative space and venue for local artists, businesses, and skaters. This event marks the beginning of an effort to paint Long Beach, but also lies in the cutting-edge multifaceted artistic and entrepreneurial programming put on by Headquarters on 4th which offers allies, access to space, and resources to the community of Long Beach. Bringing together young artists and leaders from across the city and beyond, Headquarters on 4th offers recording studio/ booth sessions, live music, screen printing, banner printing, skateboards, branded streetwear, punk-rock band tees and patches, and a video/ film editing space. Administered by The Wahl: Street Art Supply and Headquarters on 4th, King of 4th Graffiti Battle is the first program in the city centered on urban arts, visual arts, and hip-hop culture. - Nat Losbaker
