Event Description

Join KUTX, NPR Music and Lagunitas Brewing Company for a celebration of the Tiny Desk Contest community in Austin! This event will feature a live performance by 2017 Tiny Desk Contest winners Tank and the Bangas, as well as some of our favorite local artists who entered the Contest this year:

  • Belcurve
  • Kiko Villamizar
  • Pocket Sounds

  • 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 KUTX to host a night of amazing live music from Austin bands who entered the Tiny Desk Contest. Join us for a celebration of the Austin musical community!
