The SoHo Writer's Showdown.

On May 20, 1979, the well-known street artist Scopes held a graffiti competition entitled the "SoHo Writer's Showdown" in the Courtyard in SoHo. The gangs involved in the contest were the Electric Eliminators, Moonrunners, Panzers, and the eventual winners The Warriors. However, after The Warriors were declared winners of the contest things went sour, as the Hi-Hats' leader Chatterbox appeared, ordering his Hi-Hats to throw Scopes off some scaffolding and attack the gangs present.[1]
