Wish you could have been in NYC for the rise of hip-hip in the ’80s? Tonight, let photographer Ricky Powell (a/k/a the Fourth Beastie Boy) educate you at “Funky Dope Maneuvers,” an exhibition and slideshow of New York and its legendary characters, including Run–D.M.C., the Beastie Boys back when they were young punks, Basquiat and Andy Warhol, and more. Tonight’s reception, part of the CBGB Music and Film Festival and presented by GRIT New York, includes photos measuring 40 feet high and beats provided by DJ Stretch Armstrong.
