Event Description

Join WBEZ, NPR Music and Lagunitas Brewing Company for a celebration of the Tiny Desk Contest community in Chicago! 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:
  • Will Phalen
  • Low Swans
  • Nashon Holloway Band

  • 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, 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 WBEZ to bring Tank and the Bangas and the Tiny Desk Contest tour to Chicago.

    Registration is required for this event. You can register below.

    Event entry for ticket holders is first come, first serve. Admittance not guaranteed.
