Going In Style

Urban Styles: Graffiti In NYHC book signing party with author Freddy Alva. DJ Mr. Lee (Going In Style Sound System) spins scorching underground sounds. Happy hour prices until 8pm!

Urban Styles the first book from author Freddy Alva, is a subterranean adventure back to a time when subcultures and underground movements blended seamlessly and went largely unnoticed by the mainstream world. Urban Styles deftly straddles the seemingly in congruent worlds of graffiti culture and the hardcore punk scene of the 1980s to tell the story of a unique moment in time when crossover between the two outlaw cultures was a common, if not heralded, occurrence. Urban Styles chronicles a gritty New York City and its boroughs while telling the stories of forgotten revolutionaries who were as familiar with stealth runs through train yards as they were slamming on the CBGB dance floor.
