Monday, May 8th | 7 PM – 11 PM
in the KEXP Gathering Space
Join KEXP, NPR Music and Lagunitas Brewing Company for a celebration of the Tiny Desk Contest community in Seattle! This event will feature live performances by some of our favorite local artists who entered the 2017 Tiny Desk Contest:
• Breaks & Swells
• The Environment
• and more to be announced!
More than 6,000 unsigned bands and artists entered NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Contest in 2017, our search to find a great undiscovered talent to perform at the most famous desk in music. Our judges picked one winner — New Orleans’ Tank and the Bangas — but in the process, we found many new musicians to fall in love with, and countless reasons to celebrate all the creativity tucked away in communities across the country.
Now, NPR Music and Lagunitas Brewing Company (the sponsor of the Tiny Desk Contest since its launch in 2014) are teaming up with our friends at KEXP to host a night of conversation and music. Hosted by DJ Kevin Cole and NPR’s Bob Boilen. Join KEXP and NPR Music staff for a celebration of the Seattle musical community!
