To quote: For those who don't know, we call these things "Fight Clubs" and the concept is pretty simple.

We spice it up with some totally exclusive shirt giveaways, exclusive artwork and giftbags, and maybe... just maybe, some extra epic events.
The party is going down this Friday, April 23rd, from 8pm to midnight, in Los Angeles, CA (in the Silver Lake neighborhood).
We'll post the exact address on Thursday, so stay tuned, but here's a little taste...
