Producer, MC, and DJ Edan Portnoy and vaunted old-school photographer Ricky Powell represent the weird side of hip-hop craft. That makes them a perfect pairing for this multimedia restart of San Francisco's Change the Beat club night. Kicking it off is Tom Fitzgerald's video-collage interpretation of Echo Party. Portnoy provides the soundtrack, a maxi-mixtape of obscure tracks from the vaults of New York's legendary Traffic Entertainment label, layered with his own subtly psychedelic sounds. Powell will follow that by narrating a slideshow overview of his New York street photography career, which began soon after he hooked up with the ascendant Beastie Boys in 1985. Portnoy closes the night with a rare DJ set.
