The Henao Contemporary Center – located just north of Lee Road on Edgewater Drive, miles away from what anyone considers a thriving cultural district – has proven to be the little venue that could. Riding high on the wave that last month’s Body//Talk-curated Contact Festival brought to the multi-use facility, tonight’s Crock Pot party gets back to the Henao’s bread and butter – art – while retaining some of that DIY party spirit. Local artists like Lucy Fur, Joe Quillsong, Ryan Temple and Tobar show off work while Eduardo Smet and Havetelo do some live mural-painting. Meanwhile, a who’s-who of local Soundcloud producers (Donny Blanks, Tedd.gif, Grant, Gwadcip$, etc.) provide beats for a gallery vibe that’s way more street than museum – which describes the Henao to a T.

7 p.m. Friday, April 7 | Henao Contemporary Center, 5601 Edgewater Drive | | $5
