Event Description

Join WMOT, WPLN, NPR Music and Lagunitas Brewing Company for a celebration of the Tiny Desk Contest community in Nashville! This event will feature live performances by some of our favorite local artists who entered the 2017 Tiny Desk Contest:

  • Liz Cooper & The Stampede
  • Ike & The Crooked Souls
  • Peyton Parker
  • Scriptkiddie

  • 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 WPLN and WMOT to host a night of amazing live music from Nashville bands who entered the Tiny Desk Contest. Join WMOT, WPLN and NPR Music staff for a celebration of the Nashville musical community!
