In Walter Hill's 1979 cult classic film, The Warriors, a Coney Island gang (the Warriors) find themselves wrongfully accused of killing a powerful gang leader during a "Let's call a truce and crush the cops" assembly. The film follows the gang's harrowing flight back to their home turf, a bounty on their heads and an army of thugs on their tail. In honor of the film's forthcoming 30th anniversary, Vitale Studio presents a one-night art event, Warriors, Come Out and Play, featuring works by more than 30 visual artists, including Tes One, Bask, John Vitale, Bluelucy, Frank Strunk III, Dolla Lama, Chris Parks and Brandon Dunlap. On the runway, fashion designer Courtney Kessel debuts a new 20-piece women's collection created with the Warriors theme in mind and encompassing a diversity of fabrics and materials, from silk and cotton to grocery bags. ZOS and her dance crew perform, and live spins are played throughout the evening by Big Chris, Samthepickle, Sugar Bear and Orlando's DJ Patrick. Sat., May 31, 7 p.m.-midnight, Vitale Studio, 2740 25th St. N., St. Petersburg, free admission, 727-466-8500,
