The bank account of Pickster One is probably growing exponentially by the day, what with everything that the obscenely talented turntable artist has piled on his plate lately. Besides his longstanding Blunt Club residency and his Tuesday joint at the new Rocky Point Cantina in Tempe, the 33-year-old spends his weekends doing one-off appearances at gigs like Fuse and Burning Bridges. (Plus he's got a European tour lined up and a new CD in the works. However, none of these feats is as fly as The Scenario, his new Wednesday-night collaboration with hipster hustlers Hartbreaks and Ellery at Bar Smith, 130 East Washington Street. "The name of the night plays off an old party song by A Tribe Called Quest, which is funny because we're not playing any hip-hop," Pickster says. Instead, the trio will maniacally mix up moombahton, house music, dubstep, and "future bass" (a combination of UK funky, broken beats, and tropical) for those in attendance.
